This is the exact recipe for Paulette’s Super Gourmet Suet Recipe, as originally featured on Ricky Montgomery’s Wildlife page on Facebook — now you can become popular with the birds, too, by making your own suet at home
Every time we share a video from Ricky Montgomery’s Wildlife page on Facebook, our fans and followers love it! So much, that we’re frequently asked what’s in the suet and how to make the recipe at home.
So, we’ve decided – with permission from fellow bird and wildlife enthusiast Ricky Montgomery – to include the recipe right here on our Wild Bird Blog for easy reference.
We’ve also included the video of his wife Paulette making her suet from scratch, the video is included below. Now, you can follow along at your own pace.
Here’s her famous suet recipe, it’s easy to make and is popular with many birds:
