I have a couple of cages for raising crickets should my access to a food source ever be depleted.

It's not an idea I like, but neither is starving to death.

Every time that you eat "all natural red food coloring" you are eating..........bugs!! Yup, cochineal is a red bug that is used for red color in food, lipstick, bath and beauty items, candy etc.

Yum.

And shellac that is a food safe wood finish is made from bugs and grain alcohol. It's hubbies fave for kitchen wood stuff.

from ReTIRED.....( Original Poster here on this thread. )

My Father was a Prisoner-of-War under the Japanese in World War II.
(captured after surrender on Bataan, Philippine Islands..."Battle of Bataan"
and the "Death March" )
He was a prisoner for OVER 3 years. Truman and the A-Bomb "saved" him.
Upon his "liberation" at age 32 ++ ...he weighed 78 pounds. ( 5 foot 11 inches tall )

But, HE would NOT have been alive ...and "saved"....
.were it not for eating insects and larvae...
....such as "maggots" ....just to get some PROTEIN !
( so he could WORK in a condemned, unsafe COAL MINE 10 hours each day ! )
( IF he didn't WORK...his ration of RICE was reduced ! )

BUT...
although he remained "fond" of RICE....
I don't RECALL that he EVER ate such "Protein" ( bugs ) again.
He WAS Big on FISH and STEAKS, however !
and potatoes and ice-cream and watermelons and pancakes and grits and eggs and tortillas and Green Chiles and everything else !!
Ha-Ha !!!
(CHICKEN, too ! )

I ate some snails once...
( a "date" of mine suggested them for a pre-meal snack.
She called them "Escargot" - Ess-Car-Go )
We dipped them in hot butter.
I was able to swallow them...no problem.
BASICALLY tasteless !
---NEVER bothered to order them again....
---WASTE of MONEY !

Eat MORE CHICKEN !
( and LET the CHICKENS ENJOY the bugs !!! )

Yes, Maam....I'd like some Rice and Broccoli with my Chicken....
and a Pabst Blue-Ribbon, if you please....



THANK YOU....
( it's early....ANOTHER Pabst Blue-Ribbon...? THANK YOU !
The Service has been excellent ! )

:)

You can have my share of them bugs. I'll stick to steak and eggs.

Shellac-- the smell takes me back to my childhood. My unlce had a cabinet shop and used shellac, today when I smell shellac I can picture him in his shop.
