...yes, another one of nature's nutrition storehouses I still need to try! If you are sure they are organic, another possible solution to the garden snail problem! Or of course we could just reduce the human population load on the planet and share the bounty!

And though, technically, this should be in the recipe section of the forum, as I said I've never tested them!

Evidently eating bugs is catching on! This article was on the front page of the WSJ today:

Would You Like Flies With That? Bug Eaters Try to Get Some Buzz

The article lists some sites where you can learn more and order edible insects.

Here is a link to the NYT article:

Evidently you should watch out for the love bug effect at some of these events......

While I have no interest in eating insects, I have learned recently that aspartame (Equal) will kill ants. Think about that next time you're buying a Diet Coke.

While I am doing the spring gardening I will be saving a few of those chubby white grubs to saute for lunch- it will happen!
