Jungle Cuisine!

A bowl full of Palm Grubs! Um, um good!



Best eaten fried! Very oily, much like bacon!


If you prefer the low fat version, you could eat the earth worms!


Eaten live and raw,
but taste best when smoked over a fire!


You're all invited for dinner!

I have a strong stomach, and could probably eat em if hungry enugh - that is the worms. The grubs, on the other hand, look rather appelaing whenever I have seen them fried or roasted in the pan. One day I'll try em.

Terri said...

I've always thought I could go to the mission field because food doesn't usually gross me out, but . . . wow. I'd be right over, but I think it's my night to wax the cat.

Rebecca said...

That's just nasty,but then so are pickled pigs feet. Although I suppose if I was raised on them I wouldn't think so. I wonder what we eat that would gross them out? When I was in the German hospital recently, the nurse nearly died when she saw me eating a ham, egg and cheese crossandwitch from Burger King for breakfast. Thouroughly disgusted she was. lol Mostly they just eat bread with butter or jam for breakfast.

A double no thanks! I think the food I offered on Cinco de Mayo was much more tantalizing!
It was so good talking with you today. Praying for you!

I love lot of foods that not exactly main-line America: Squid, octopus, alligator, etc. I've always said I'll try any food once, but I don't know if I could handle the palm grubs or earthworms. With me, it might rank right with balut!
