Thanks! Great article.

It reminded me of eating some kind of seasonal beetles in the Peace Corps/Philippines. We went out on a moonlit night and squatted down and collected the beetles from the blades of long grass ,where they were easily seen. We  then "popped" them  in a hot wok  on our wonderful earthen stove. I can't remember if we used oil or not but they were quite good (as opposed to the big roasted grub that I really couldn't turn down!). Given that any food we didn't grow we carried a couple miles uphill- they were a deal!

Good memories and permaculture start there.

Happy crunching!
