And all this time I thought you were as aussie! You mean you've never eaten Witchetty_grubs!


Ah don't tell me?! You HAVE?! :o
Nah.....I've used them for fishing-bait though. Don't remember them catching me anything of significance. See what I mean? Grubs, larvae, yucky- even the fish won't eat them! :wink:

I have; my grandmother served them microwaved when I was a kid. They taste pretty damn good, a bit like bone marrow.

Did 'em once in Darwin on a drunken dare. I reckon they are not any worse than eating barbecued locust in Thailand (also while on the p*ss!).

I agree with the sentiment that New Moons’ response was pretty darn comforting… Are they a Sing company?

Meanwhile having some trouble finding Oz rice. Found some Oz brown rice at Holland Village cold storage. Gonna try Jelita on the weekend. I will never think of rice on the same way again. I wouldn't trust it with a barge-pole. Gonna get the magnifying glass out. All you witchety grub eaters can eat what you like. I'm a little squeamish......
