WaPo touts insect eating as ‘a sustainable protein source’ – ‘Can you eat cicadas? Yes, & here’s the best way to catch, cook and snack on them’

Washington Post:

The first time Weiss saw periodical cicadas was in 2004. As a self-proclaimed “science mom,” she was excited to encounter them with her two young daughters.

“I let them stay up until midnight so that we could go outside and pluck cicadas from their nymphal cases as they emerged,” she says. She served them up, dipped in chocolate, to her daughters’ classmates — to mixed reactions of intrigue, awe and disgust. “My older daughter is 23 now, and I still run into her classmates who say, ‘I remember that you gave me a bug to eat when I was in second grade.’”

As a chef and executive director of Brooklyn Bugs, whose mission is to promote insects as a sustainable protein source, Joseph Yoon plans to try them at every point in their life cycle, drawing on nose-to-tail ideas of cooking.

“There’s so much beauty in the unknown,” he says. “I plan on just exhausting all the possibilities.”

WaPo, a liberal rag sheet brought to you by the communist Jeff Bezos, a man with more wealth (and scams) than Bill Gates.  Both men dedicated to the love of money no matter the cost (economic or physical) to other people.  Hey, doesn't the Bible say the love of money is the root of all evil? 888bravo

"Let them eat cake..."

"Let them eat cicadas..."

I remember in 2nd grade that the teacher brought in chocolate covered ants for us to try. I kept going to the end of of the line till all claimed to have tried them.

I look back and still can't figure out what the point was.  All I know, is that I was not about to partake.

Nope, not into eating insects. 

I think we need to remember who just bought up the largest amount of farmland in the U.S.; Gates.  Evil as he is, it will be interesting to see how he lines his pockets on this.  Will he wind up being the one person left with the only source of food?

At one point in time, they tried in the area to require a license to grow produce on your property and they wanted to conduct inspections.  It fell by the wayside, but at the time I found it troubling and still do.

I have ate a mess of hoppers. Not bad. Nutty, crunchy. Same with meal worms.

One of the things you learn walking off into the woods and staying there is to be grateful for any food you can get your hands on.

That being said, there is no need to eat insects if a capitalist system is allowed to work freely.
If you are down to eating insects and hard tack, that's fairly well somewhere close to the last gasp.
