Serves: innumerable
  • Edible glue:
  • ¾ c. flour (I use all-purpose, I'm sure about any kind works just fine)
  • ½ c. water
  • 3 T corn syrup (I use light)
  • 1 envelope of plain gelatin (optional)
  • 4 c. birdseed and peanuts, fruits, berries, raisins, or anything else you have on hand that the birds would enjoy.
  1. Mix flour, water, and corn syrup (a whisk works well). Add in the envelope of gelatin, if using.
  2. Add 4 cups of seed, nuts, fruits, whatever you're using. Mix well.
  3. Press seed mix into a plastic container of your preferred size (which has been lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper).
  4. Refrigerate for one hour.
  5. Remove seed block from container, and hang it in your seed cage.
Seed blocks freeze well - just wrap in plastic wrap and stack in the freezer until you need one.
