Originally, the recipe called for the use of melted suet (hard, crumbly fat that surrounds the internal organs of animals) as a binding agent to hold the ingredients together in a small ball. But for the sake of our modern taste buds, the recipe I'm presenting here replaces melted suet with peanut butter and honey. The use of cayenne is optional, depending upon individual taste.
- 1 cup of jerky
- 1 cup of dried berries
- 1 cup of raw sunflower seeds or any type of crushed nuts
- 2 teaspoons of honey
- 1/4 cup of peanut butter
- 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne [optional]
