I raised button quail for a couple of years and had a couple of bins of waxworms and mealworms. My kids all know of my eating adventures when I was younger and traveling around and would dare me to eat the little wriggling things. I have had them raw, fried (my favorite), dried and sauteed. I have done the same with earthworms, crickets/grasshopper (remove them long jumping legs), ants and ant larvae and a scorpion.
I figure I love Shrimp, Crabs and Escargot and they look like sea going bugs; why can't I eat land ones?

Wow very nice! That sounds awesome. I'm going to have to work up to that. Ok I've had a lot of homebrew so far this evening ... Ah your descriptions, they make me yearn for Alaska though I've never been there. There's a guy around her who has a seafood store who is from Alaska and he and his son actually catch their own salmon under permit and some other types of seafood to sell in their store. He has some videos of people he's taken on a tour up there, and it just looks amazing.

Having said all of that, there is just one thing (so far) I haven't been able force myself to try and I had the opportunity, twice.

Baluts: a fertilized duck embryo that is boiled and eaten in the shell. It is commonly sold as streetfood in the Philippines.

I just cannot get past the appearance of it.

Um yah I can envision maybe what that must look like ... so ... hm .. ok ... maybe lots of homebrew ... don't look at it ... smell something you really like while you ingest it ... and then gulp! it's done! Ok maybe not that easy ...

How funny, one of the things I am excited to do sometime between now and when I am too old to chew or digest things is try balut. I can wrap my head around that, albeit with some effort. Bugs? Much more difficult.

At my restaurant we set it up with a local farmer so that we have our own set of pigs raised. We choose what we feed it, how big/ old we want it, then kill and butcher it ourselves. Completely human and as little environmental impact as possible. Pretty sweet.
