    a freezing ?

    Advertisements
    We have several fish that are heavy veggie eaters. They favor zucchini and cucumbers. I have a couple of coworkers that garden pretyy heavily who end up with bunches of exactly those veggies every summer that the want to give away. To avoid waste I only ever take a few since they can only eat so much before the veggies start to spoil so I am wondering if freezing them would be an option or if they would mot thaw well. We don't cook them, we feed it sliced and raw, but could blanch them a little if it would make it more freeze friendly.

    I freeze zucchini...no problem with it. I slice them up and usually put them in a lasagna or veggie stir fry.

    ETA. Just noticed that these are for your fish. I fail.

    Thanks - I've used frozen peas (great for fish that are backed up) and green beans before, I just wasn't sure how well those particular veggies would thaw. I didn't want to end up with a bunch of mush in the tank. Jake's big pleco (he's almost 11 inches now and still growing) eats like a beast so if I can stockpile some free food I'm all about it.
