[quote=“Wenatcheeguy, post:5, topic:840”]General rules for bugs:
If it has more than 6 legs DONT EAT IT.
If it has a stinger, remove and BOIL IT to neutralize the poison, but even then some still have reactions.
Remove anything that can poke or cut… so legs and wings should go… remember it’s the “juicy stuff” inside that you are really after… not the puny legs.
It’s too easy to find other bugs… best to stick to them.
You can eat bugs individually, but they are easier to eat and usually taste better if you throw them in to a soup or stew… Maggots cook up just like rice… you’ll never notice the difference… Add some roots and you’ll think it’s storebaught stew.
Eassier than bugs… try worms… boiled earthworms are just like pasta noodles, and pretty east to dig, high in protein, and taste good once cooked. remember to “milk” them by squeesing out the poop.[/quote]
You’ve really been offering some interesting incite into some of the questions asked around here, but I have seen MANY videos of people who are still wild eating things like tarantulas and such, obviously catching and cooking before eating.
As per most things there are always the exception… I’ve questioned my entire upbringing and thus, I question everything. >.>
