Before you balk at the idea of eating bugs you find in your back yard, consider the lobster, much prized by gourmets and priced right up there with filet mignon, but looking for all the world like a giant cockroach. If it weren’t for some hungry pioneer way back when, we’d probably all turn our noses up in disgust at the thought of eating “sea bugs.”

If nothing else, eating bugs (which are rich in protein and low in fat) may be one solution to global hunger.

The YouTube video that follows comes to us by way of our tech guru, Ted Slater. It stars the Arbogast family, friends of his from graduate school, demonstrating the proper technique for consuming cicadas.

Enjoy!
