We thought Truffle was a picky eater... until Abby-Roo came along. She spat out cranberries, made faces at basil leaves, bolted at the scent of bananas, and gave blueberries the occasional half-hearted nibble. Even classic guinea pig forage favorites like clover and dandelion flowers didn't tempt her into venturing outside her food comfort zone.
Frisée was a different story. Given Abby-Roo's previous reactions to being presented with new foods, we were delighted when she devoured the frizzy plant straight away.
Seasonal availability: This winter green can be found from fall through spring.
How to pick: Look for frisée with crisp, firm leaves and vivid color. The stump should be slightly browned. Avoid plants with limp leaves or a slimy texture.
Are your pigs fans of frisee?
