What is Suet?

The actual definition of the word suet is: the hard white fat on the kidneys and loins of cattle, sheep, and other animals, used to make foods including puddings, pastry, and mincemeat.

We use the word suet when speaking about the grease (fat) drippings that are left after cooking up a batch of ground beef, ground turkey, bacon or chicken.  Many people pour the excess grease (fat) into a tin or glass jar and then throw it away once it is solid. But that grease (fat) can be used for many great things and should not be thrown away.

Many people use their bacon grease drippings to cook fried eggs or anything else that they would like a nice fatty flavor on.

Many people also use the leftover grease drippings to make their very own homemade suet cakes.  This is where You Do It Suet® comes in handy. Our product is used to create you very own suet cake, right at home, using ingredients you most likely already have in your kitchen.  All you do is pour the excess grease (fat) off of your cooked meat into the You Do It Suet® mold, mix in a few tablespoons of bird seed, peanut butter, nuts, berries, mealworms, etc. and you have your very own suet cake that you can then feed to the birds during the cold Winter months when they need the extra fat the most.
