Cornmeal is a course ground form of dried corn. It offers a fine constancy and is a great addition to any homemade suet cake. Small wild birds have small beaks and mouths and they need small foods to eat.
Cornmeal adds a gritty texture to any homemade suet cake. When making a suet cake with creamy peanut butter, add a couple spoonfuls of cornmeal for a grittier texture that birds enjoy. Cornmeal also has some fat and some vitamins, which are a great nutritional source for wild birds, especially during the colder months.
