As in me licking peanut butter off of the sharp end of a knife. Ouch, and to think I thought I had common sense, lol. Won't do that again!

Sorry, but the thread was making me hungry and the recipe was just a few steps away from being pesto. Mmmm....pesto.

Have you ever read "Common sense" Obituary....pretty funny and sadly true......

I will look for it and post it if you want to read it...I have never looked for it on the internet, it is a hard copy from the paper that I have.

Gosh, I don't see why not as long as the fish like it, I have tried all sorts of different things, but the main thing I use in any of the foods I make for fish is "garlic" I even chopped up some fresh red worms and garlic then smashed and frozen, blanched kale and garlic, when I blanch my squash I use garlic in the water and drop the garlic along with the squash in the tank, there is never left to take out.

We had a massive amount of mosquito larva last year so I started to gather and freeze them, I plan to add these frozen skeeters to a mix, I have not tried it yet and I don't know how freezing affect the nutrition value of skeeters...but I do know they love frozen skeeter when I grate them over the tank with an old box grater, they like the live ones best, but due to being seasonal I thought I would give freezing them a try.

I would imagine that you could treat the skeeters the same as shrimp...

ie they wouldn't love any more vitamins than the shrimp already are.Maybe look up the process for freezing brine shrimp and use it.

Someone with a snail infestation could probably use the snails instead of shrimp...
kinda gross to cut up though.


Speaking of gross-
I may make this with earthworm.... (they're cheaper than shrimp since I never have shrimp in the house.)

on a diferent topic, how do you grow garlic? I always imagined it would be kinda useless- plant 1 clove of garlic to grow one clove of garlic?

To grow garlic is like a having a baby..it take nine months...plant in the fall, harvest in the spring/summer, one head can make 6-12 cloves, plant them in full sun, I have a garlic bed but I also plant one clove between each of my roses, garlic plants don't take up that much room, they get tall 3-4ft and maybe 6-12in wide at the base and not many leaves, they also make a cool flower head and then fall over when done...one clove will turn into one head in 9 months.........

The store bought worms sometimes have additives that can be bad for a closed system...so check where you buy them if you don't collect them from your yard or compost bin.

I have chopped up some snails from my over population and fed straight from the shell...a very tedious job..but the fish love it...thought about making or adding some to food...but the tedious job has turned me off.....lol.......

Hey you know what my rain barrel has a TON mosquito larva all the time I was debating to feed them too but was worried the fish wouldn't snatch all of them and then some hatch in my house which I didn't need....freezing them seems a very safe way to avoid that part I never thought that far; tanks for the idea will feed them frozen now too hopefully my fish will like them
