Survival Food!!?

Pin It
So, it's not really considered a "survival food" where we live, but for some it might serve as a survival food when there is nothing left to eat.  Although I grew up in a culture where bee larvae are considered a delicacy, I probably wouldn't be able to get myself to enjoy one of these unless it was the only thing available and I haven't eaten anything for days...  Just in case you are curious, here is the recipe for those who are brave enough to try some.












Ingredients:
  • bee larvae (how ever much you can obtain)
  • green onions (chopped, about the same amount as the bee larvae)
  • salt and pepper
  • oil (1 to 2 table spoons)

    Cooking Direction:
      Heat oil in the frying pan and saute the bee larvae.  Bee (haha punny) sure the larvae are cooked all the way.  Then add the chopped green onions and saute together until the green onions begin to sweat.  Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with white rice.


      They are very nutritious and is good for your health, but sometimes, that's not enough to get some people to try.  If you had the privilege of trying some of these please leave a comment and tell us how it was.

    1. Hi Kento! I have never had bee larvae (even though I grew up with my grandparents, and my grandpa was a bee keeper) but while we were visiting Narita one day, I bought a container of cooked grasshoppers, and ate a few every morning for breakfast. The saleswoman had told me that they were "good for female health", whatever that means, so I figured it was worth a try. They were covered in a teriyaki sauce, so the flavor itself wasn't horrible, but the feeling of having long spindly grasshopper legs crunching around in my mouth got old pretty quickly. One morning I asked myself, "What am I doing?" and I threw the rest away.

    2. Metta that's a great story. Thanks for sharing. I have seen those grass hoppers too, but I don't think I ever tried them. Maybe when the world is coming to an end and there is nothing to eat...then I could maybe consider eating something like that...
