Well.
I eat sardines that are cooked whole - so I guess I just like fish guts.

I also eat escargot, guts and all.

I love sushi.

I've eaten ants.

Why should some stupid beetles be of any radical importance to me???

?

Good point, Ted.

For some reason some things seem so unpalatable while others seem okay. I was raised eating raw oysters freshely shucked from the shell (no doubt still alive) and I couldn't eat them fast enough.

I adore escargot and sushi and love achovies.

Maybe I need to be more open-minded and try other things as well.

PS Bat guano (poop) is a base for many lipsticks and foudations.

My old neighbor years ago used to work at a place that made the coating for m and m's.

There was some kind of insect involved to make it not melt that quickly.

He wouldn't eat them. I got over it, then again I never saw the bug.

Fungi in coffee beans add to flavour
Last Updated Fri, 25 Aug 2006 16:57:53 EDT
CBC News
Different types of fungi found in coffee beans help give a brew its flavour and aroma, Brazilian researchers say.

The inherent characteristics of coffee beans lend the drink its taste and aroma, but naturally occurring fungi in the beans also make a difference, and could complement traditional flavourings, said Martha Taniwaki of Brazil's Institute of Food Technology.

Taniwaki and her colleagues collected raw coffee beans and isolated the fungi a week later.

The samples were then roasted, ground, brewed and taste-tested for body, aroma, acidity, bitterness, sweetness and astringency or harshness.

The different flavours linked to moulds were described as floral, citric, caramel, chocolate and toast.

Sweeter species of fungus led to better-tasting coffee, the researchers found.

Soil, climate and humidity determine which fungi grow inside the coffee bean, said Taniwaki, who presented the findings this week at the International Mycological Conference in Cairns, Australia.
By learning more about coffee fungi, it might be possible to encourage the growth of desirable species, the way wine and cheese makers do, she said.

Bugs, fungi, spores, bacteria, guts, and such.
It's all good to me, as long as it tastes good.
:wink:

On that note,
ever try Squid-ink pasta?
Heaven, I tell you!

I heard it like this:
Great big gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts.
Mutilated monkey meat.
Little dirty birdie feet.
All wrapped up in Vulture vomit a la cart
Glad I brought my straw!

Good Stuff!
