Monica Eng, a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, kindly tells us how to track down and consume little critters in the Windy City.
If you happen to be in Chicago and have a hankering for grasshoppers, meal worms, silkworm larva, or Prawns (with appendages) be sure to check out her helpful column that points you in the right direction and also provides a write-up detailing what one can expect.
She does have a basic warning, however; don’t look at what you are eating. Oh, and make sure you have toothpicks handy if you tackle the grasshoppers; apparently their appendages get stuck in your teeth.
As an added bonus, the column has a video of the intrepid reporter cracking open a can of silkworm larva and popping one into her mouth and chewing on the “crunchy exoskeleton.” Yum yum!
