Cicadas “Brood X”

JodieDownUnder Posts: 1,482 admin

I’ve just been reading about the very soon appearance of millions and millions of cicadas about to emerge in North America.

I had trouble with the category to put this thread into, Alternative livestock or recipes! I chose general chat. Other than our dog crunching on them, I must say the thought of eating them, doesn’t turn me on. Maybe @judsoncarroll4 has a Southern Appalachian recipe for them! I’m imagining the scene from Forest Gump, “shrimp, I like em’ broiled, baked, fresh, deep fried, with ketchup. You get my drift. Has anyone out there tried or willing to try cicadas as a food (sauce) source? Hope y’all got your ear plugs!
