As I've said before, zucchini is not my favorite veggie straight up.  It needs to be baked into goodies, or breaded/fried/marinated to make it edible.  All of my guinea pigs over the year have held the same opinion of raw zucchini.  If I left ends in their cage, they would remain untouched until I threw them out.  And who could blame them?  From what I've read, lots of guinea pigs have the same attitude (often to the despair of owners faced with a bumper crop of zucchini).

Then there's Cannoli and Boadicea.

Zucchini?  Love the stuff.  I knew Cannoli is a bit odd, but I was surprised when Boadi nabbed a slice after barely sniffing it.  She eyeballs most everything I give her as if I'm trying to poison her.  But this?  Gone.  She didn't even wait to see if Noli liked it.

So now I know, if I buy a zucchini that won't all fit into a bread or cake recipe, the leftover bits won't go to waste.

  1. Yours must be the first pigs I've heard of who enjoy it. My pigs refuse to touch the stuff.


I enjoy reading your comments and I strive to reply by email (if you're not set to no-reply).
