We're starting to see the little mounds of dirt from their burrows appear on our front lawn....
The 17-year cicadas are coming!
Anyone know the nutritional value of these little devils? They might be tasty in chocolate...
Addendum 21 May 2007 @ 1937: I already found one recipe...
21 May 2007 @ 1947: Even more recipes... but none with chocolate.... but quiche?
I found you a whole cicada cookbook at
complete with several recipes you might like, including this one...
I dare you to make it!
Chocolate Covered Cicadas
8 squares of good-quality dark, white, or milk chocolate
30 dry roasted cicadas
1. Roast teneral cicadas for 15 minutes at 225F.
2. Meanwhile, melt chocolate in a double-boiler over low heat. Dip insects in chocolate, place on wax paper and refrigerate until hardened.
Wow! Thanks! Might be time to make a new video...
Yummy and nutritious, says National Geographic.
