Those Migros bugs

Finally got around to try them. They were deep fried/dehydrated until there was not much taste left. All tastes slightly buttery and umami.

Re: Those Migros bugs

Thank you for the post. I don't think I'll be trying them! In Coop they are often reduced to clear as they can't sell them.

Well, if we want to save the planet as seen on another thread then maybe it´s time to become an entomophage.
Pound for pound they are the best source of protein for least energy used.

All very well and logic. But these creatures freak me out when I meet them alive, how could I ever eat them?

Last fall it turned out cockchafer grubs had invaded a flower pot (which explained why those poor flowers were struggling all summer). I seriously cringed when I had to sort them out (and they don't even move much, LOL). Next problem was what the f**k to do with them?! (Yes, I did check them on internet, they were not from harmless rose chafers). Beat them dead? Eeeck. Flush them down the toilet? Didn't sound smart either. Chuck them in neighbours garden? Not nice.
In the end I piled them up next to a little stone-wall (in my garden) and the lovely birds got it sorted in no time.

I will have to leave it to the birds to save the world. Yep, I'm a coward - maybe if I didn't see they're shape I might even like eating them.

Re: Those Migros bugs

As a biker I know bugs mostly by taste, (I like the little black ones, crunchy on the outside, nice and gooey on the inside) but I think that most people in the west are put off by the culture, these are the same guys and galls who cringe at the thought of eating an insect and will tell you that over their fried prawn and noodles.
But even in Europe not all that long ago eating insects was a normal thing. Here have a look and a drool over Maikäfersuppe: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maik%C3%A4fersuppe
