Tell you what. You can raise snakes and iguanas on a diet of crickets, and I'll eat barbecued lizard meat.

The line must be drawn, here and no further!

That reminds me, I should probably check the banana peels I've been marinating in vintage Hai Karate for Sweetie's special surprised Valentine's Day dinner.

My luck, i would marry a crazy biatch like this, who eats bugs, but she won't give a nice bj, not even on my bday.

Not really. Insects are cheaper to raise (require less water, less space, and can be farmed locally no matter your locale), cheaper to process (face it, they just get grond-up whole), contain less fat, are better for the environment....

Not that I don't want a goddamned steak right now because of you, you bastard, but....

Obligatory:


Vincent: Bacon tastes gooood. Pork chops taste gooood.

Jules: Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Pigs sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.

There is, almost certainly, a worm, bug, ant, roach or some other critter than when eaten will give you the best high you've ever felt.  When we eventually find that critter we will all become bug eating aficionados. given to discoursing in mile long threads the best way to raise them, when to harvest them, when to eat them and what goes best as a chaser.

I bought one of those chocolate and cayenne bars made with crickets the other day. It was pretty good.
 
2014-02-07 06:50:30 PM
Fry those mealworms until they're crispy, stick them in a fresh, buttered tortilla with some bathtub cheese and it's surprisingly good.

I'll leave the roach eating to those freaks that eat shrimp with the shells on.

I've eaten water bug, and I've eaten tarantulas in SE Asia. I'll go with the water bugs.

They taste like... peanut oil and Knorr Chicken seasonings, 'cause that is how they are fried. Pretty much like anything fried. Oil and seasonings. You can get them for $7.00 a dozen by the roadside.

"I can get them to eat anything."
"Not bugs."
"Wanna bet on it?"
"Sure. I'll bet you a hundred bucks."
"Done. Watch me."

I have a feeling that if many people were given a choice of catching bugs, cooking them and eating them versus dressing a cow, pig, or the like, cooking it and eating it... there would be a lot more bug eaters.

Bleeding, gutting and quartering a cow is a serious gd mess once you've got it done. It's not even a little bit delightful and the smell of cow guts takes a long time to put out of your mind.

For anyone around Los Angeles who wants to give bugs a try, hit up Typhoon in Santa Monica.

The ants were surprisingly good (very citrusy), and I also tried some sort of grub that had the flavor and consistency of a hard boiled egg.

I used to make pepperpot soup for my quondam roommate. I made it one day, he liked the smell, I served up a double batch every saturday afterwards in cold weather.



It took weeks before he figured out that a major part of Pepperpot soup was... you know... Tripe. He wouldn't touch it after figuing that out.

Sheesh... You people have problems with organ meats.

Ok, I've eaten:
mealworms
cicadas
crickets

But I've also eaten:
lobster and blue crabs
(actually, lots of kinds of crabs)
softshell crab
shrimp
raw oysters, mussels, clams
sashimi and sushi, raw everything (could not do the raw lobster) urchin yuk


You have to peeI off the legs for cicadas or crickets. It's like eating pine needles- you have to have at least a toothpick if the legs aren't removed.

Cicada was crunchy with a bit of goo, but tasted nutty-
the crickets had been sauteed in salt&butter- tasted just like popcorn. And I honestly mean exactly. The texture was pretty crunchy, but just this side of dry.
Mealworms were great, too, and they were fried in some olive oil. They had a crunchy soft texture that was light, and they didn't break up into jaggedy pieces like the other two bugs.

I'd try any of those in TFA but I'm guessing the tempura scorpions are the best.

Also, adding it in flours would be an excellent way to make products nutty but packed with protein.

Bring it on!

A really good Oaxacan restaurant by my house serves chapaulines. I haven't been brave enough to try them yet. They make really good black mole sauce though.

*eating meh, point made.

//We've had that choice as a species and you damn well know how it worked out.  We are overrun by deer and feral pigs in many parts of the US, don't be silly.

Yeah, chicken or fish is usually on the menu the days following a successful caribou or moose hunt.  Takes a while to get that smell out of your sinuses.

My husband is really into eating bugs. They don't seem any weirder to me than sausage or oysters. I'd say the preparation of non grub-like insects is on par with something like lobster or crab legs. Once you learn which parts are edible it's no big deal, but if you just tried to eat a random insect you might find it pretty terrible, much like trying to eat an entire artichoke.
 
2014-02-07 08:05:16 PM
I've taken my kids to the Audubon Insectarium and sampled the insect cuisine in the little restaurant. The fried waxworms with chile powder and lime are, actually, pretty good. The crickets didn't do much for me, but that was a texture issue.

The reason I don't eat popcorn very often is because the stupid kernel shells get stuck in my gums and between my teeth and it drives me up a friggin' wall until I can pry them out. Insects seem like they would increase that problem ten fold.
 
2014-02-07 09:18:28 PM
So the people who cringe at the thought of eating cooked bugs have no problem eating partial cook animal flesh with blood still dripping from it and eat chicken embryos, sometimes partial cooked and runny.
