OMG, entomophagy seems to be the theme of the day! Lol, it's come at me from like 4 different angles. Just give in Ty, bugs are delicious! Ants sour, ant eggs and moths sweet, grubs/meal worms etc earthy or woody and creamy/crispy depending on their habitat and species. The rule with bugs is, they taste almost exactly like whatever they eat, unless they're like ants with special biochemicals that influence their flavor. I at a cricket a couple days ago, yum city, I only did it because it was biting my bare foot and I wasn't please about it. I'd been wanting to try them for a while, but I admit the psyche factor was slowing me down, but when that little bast bit me I was like, oh no you didn't, and popped 'em in my mouth. It was sweet as well. I eat bugs opportunistically while I'm on the farm or in the garden. I urge anyone remotely interested, to suck it up and just pop them in your mouth, the only thing I've had that I didn't like was a green caterpillar, but that was just dumb, avoid brightly colored (reds, yellows, greens, oranges) bugs, not worth it lol!
Re the price of meat, yeah, shit is getting intense. The real resource grab is on, they just charged a guy with a fine and jail time in oregon for collecting rain water, super fucked up, enjoy things like they are for now, you might have to get super creative to maintain soon!
