Snapshots In My Time...
Of My Time.....Hauntings.
Toss spiders in a mixture of msg, sugar, and salt; fry crushed garlic is in oil until fragrant, then add spiders and fry alongside the garlic until “the legs are almost completely stiff, by which time the contents of the abdomen are not so runny. Cool and enjoy the crunch!
What can you expect? The taste is mostly described as bland, with a textural contrast between a crispy exterior and soft centre. The legs contain little flesh, while the head and body have “a delicate white meat inside”. The abdomen, however, many find not as pleasant: inside is a brown paste consisting perhaps of organs, eggs, or excrement. Some call it a delicacy while others recommend not eating it.
After doing a search on spiders of the Amazon, I found out all sorts of lovely things. Tarantulas are eaten by many people there. Some tarantulas are the size of blue crabs on up to a 12 inch pizza pan. Some are even bigger, like the goliath bird eating tarantula. Imagine how big if they are eating birds. These spiders are roasted over an open fire until cooked. Legs are cracked open like crabs and eaten and then the body is eaten. The needlelike long fangs are used as toothpicks by the villagers who eat them.
