Today's challenge was slightly messy one and we made bird food. We used bird seed (bought from the market in central Cambridge), raisins, peanuts, lard, yogurt pot and string.
We made a small hole in the bottom of a yogurt pot and threaded
string through the hole, leaving enough
string it could be tied to a tree. We let the lard to warm up to room temperature and then
cut it up into small pieces in a mixing bowl. We added the other ingredients to the bowl and mixed them together with your
finger tips until the fat held it all together. We filled the yogurt pots with bird cake mixture and put them in the fridge to set for an hour or so.
