Fat balls
• Melt 1.5 kg unsalted beef fat in a pan. Wait until it is hot and stir in a mixture of 600 g of broken hemp
seed and poppy seed and 300 g of sunflower seeds.
• Pour the warm mash into a mould, for example a tin, milk carton or tea glass.
• Before the mash sets, place a strong cotton thread in it that sticks out a long way.
• As soon as the mass has set, the balls can be hung outside by the thread.
• Sometimes it is difficult to get the ball out of the mould. A milk carton can be torn all around; place a tea glass or a can briefly in hot water, the ball then easily comes free. Of course you can also use smaller quantities if you want.
