Default Horny for Hornets? A Diet of Worms? Invertebrate Tucker

BBC

Quote:
Locusts are mentioned in the Old Testament because they were and still are a common edible crop pest in the Fertile Crescent region of the Middle East.

Lighter than meat and heavier than seafood, they're delicious.

Each one of these plant-loving insects absorbs the taste of your chosen seasoning and adds a satisfyingly crunchy texture.

Like other crops, most edible insects are highly seasonal, with many celebrations of the coming harvest held around the world - including wasp festivals in Japan and caterpillar festivals in Burkina Faso and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

So, while there's been a lot of recent interest in farming insects for food, we've been doing it non-intensively for millennia.
All this, and more with sauce... er, @ source.

My mother once worked a few months in a fancy big store food-hall.

When some interesting delicacies didn't sell, they were free for staff to take.

Some tinned, fried grasshoppers, product of Japan... MMMMM. Tasted slightly like sardines, but nutty.

OK, if the Holy Wibble is cool about eating insects, it might have been a good idea to count the number of legs in the Hexapoda first. But of course, the Good Lord in his wisdom expects us to know they are insects when he describes them as four-legged critters.

You expect this lack of clarity from a mud-god like Pikkiwocki, but wot iz Yahweh's excuse????

From the number of legs on a locust, to the age in years of the Earth, the answer's obvious... Jehovah doesn't count.

Don't forget a nutritious termite snack, Australian aborigines were on to them ages ago! See: http://insider.si.edu/2014/04/eat-li...cestors-might/
