    Default Help with Bird-Feeder craft with Peanut less PB

    A friend of mine is gonna make Bird Feeders with paper towel rolls and she normally uses Corn Syrup(which is SOOO messy). The first thing that popped into my mind was to use Peanut Butter instead but she can't because it needs to be peanut free. So I suggested Peanut Free Peanut Butter.

    Will this Peanut butter work?? Where can I find it??

    Does anyone have any other suggestions for what she could use instead of Peanutless PB or Corn Syrup??

    Pea Butter is available in the natural section of RCSS, Loblaws, I think A&P has it too. Look in the aisle with the Bobs Red Mill stuff (the natural pantry stuff). I bet honey would be cheaper though.

    Could she use Crisco Shortening or Lard of some sort? We put suet out for the birds this time of year, it looks gross...lard-like.

    We made one with shortening and it worked great.

    Instead of a paper towel roll she can use a pinecone (bigger the better) and lard. The pinecone holds the lard and seeds better than a paper towel roll! Also, when the birds have eaten it all you can just keep reusing the pinecone. Lablaws had huge ones at xmas...not sure if they are still available.

    Another idea is to use a bagel and that way the whole thing is edible. Although, I have to admit every time we make 'bird' feeders they become 'squirrel' feeders - but the process is fun
