• Gently melt it in a saucepan and add bird seed (two parts seed to one part suet).
• Pour the mixture into moulds (empty yogurt pots will do) and leave to cool in the fridge.
• If you decorated your hearth with pine cones, then roll these in the mixture and hang from trees outside (just make sure they haven’t been sprayed with paint or covered in glitter, as both can be toxic to birds).
Of course, it is a rare occasion that any roasties are left uneaten after the roast dinners, but the birds will happily snap them up if any are available. Jacket potatoes (broken open) and mash will also go down well. Chips will most likely be left on the lawn, but if you have an excess of rice from the turkey curry, they will gobble that up, too."
All the best Jan
