RE: Steamed Cockroach anyone?
I have a cookbook that is all recipes that include different types of insects. So I'm not opposed to reading insects. I actually found a few recipes in the book I want to try. The only one I don't want to try is the fried Turantula, to me those are pets not food.

Not sure what was worse - the word 'burst' (gag) or the thought of the taste of blue cheese (shudder).

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Hate to tell you this but there are an unavoidable amount of bugs and other stuff like mouse fur in things like peanut butter. The FDA allows for this because in the vast amount of food manufactured in the US it's almost impossible for some bugs to not get into the mix. But, well......it's all cooked up and mixed into the product so you really don't taste it.

I have a friend who worked in a jelly manufacturing plant for a summer college job and she said there were bugs and flies that got into the jelly vats but it gets all boiled up and...um.....the customer is none the wiser.

I like this part.

The criteria considered is based on the reported findings (e.g., lengths of hairs, sizes of insect fragments, distribution of filth in the sample, and combinations of filth types found).

Yum!

Every year in Raleigh we have Bugfest, where restaurants serve insect foods. With them and what we've had the rest of the year, we've eaten insects including mealworms, crickets (baked, fried, dried, etc.) in dishes and ice cream, and other types of larvae and bugs. My brother Jigsaw and I also had some bars made from cricket flour.

So.... We already have. Smile

There is something very strange about this "Raleigh" place...

RE: Steamed Cockroach anyone?
Lol Haha. Reading through the list of the FDA allowable insect stuff, I came across this.

Fig Paste.

"Contains 13 or more insect heads per 100 grams of fig paste in each of 2 or more subsamples."

Insect heads? Where does the rest of the body go? Are they decapitated or something?

Unfortunately, I love figs.

But do you start cursing when you find they are out of season?

I'm picturing a scientist/food inspector guy in a white lab coat going through the various food products and picking out the hairs and measuring their length.

Question: "So what do you do for a living, sir?"

Answer: "Oh, I measure mouse hairs in peanut butter and count bug heads in fig paste."

I find figs all year long. When I buy them in the winter they're probably from South America somewhere, in which case the figs probably have tarantula brains in them with the outside chance of being laced with cocaine.

Ugg.
