Potato Peelings

hummersteveFebruary 20, 2014

I wonder if others are also finding that the worms are not overly enjoyed with them. Even though they are mixed in with others it is not a popular item here. So as I eat a lot of baked potato I have stopped adding to my food scrap supply. What say you on this food item?

They will break down eventually.

It may have to do with what you added to your baked potato. They may be waiting for the salts to dissipate. I eat the peels. Peels are the best part, the good stuff full of vitamins!

Sometimes if you'll put things like that into a...uh...rot pot, and let the textures break down a little, the toothless squirmees will vigorously suck it up.

if you blend it up with other food items they will consume it quickly.

Actuallly it gets to be pulp as I run it thru my juicer with other veggies and fruit leavings.

I always have chopped peels and old wrinkled, or rotting potatoes along with other foods in the freezer. I haven't noticed that they've avoided it any more than anything else.

I put a bunch of cabbage and broccoli in the bin that I had thawed. It smelled fairly strong for a day or two, as those types of foods will. Everything is gone now.

Potato rots much slower than leafy veggies,fruit,melons ect but they will get there given enough time.
