Pear Tart Sprinkled With Weaver Ants and Queen Ants

Mmmm, dessert! A flaky, cinnamon-flecked pear tart, dusted with weaver and queen ants. Although the queen ants were a little large, I enjoyed the airy, thread-like weaver ants, whose tiny little legs, when eaten collectively, reminded me of Chinese pork floss.

Would I sign up for a dinner dedicated solely to bugs anytime soon? Probably not. But I was shocked how, by the middle of the meal, I'd become (almost) completely desensitized to the idea of consuming ants, larvae, and beetles. Had I turned crazy? Perhaps. A little more open-minded? Definitely.

WOW! I am very impressed. Not just by the fact that you ate bugs but by the fact that you had such insightful things to say about them!

Perhaps you just went into shock and the voice that would scream "no no no!" dropped in a dead faint. :) Were all the bugs already dead when you ate them? I can't imagine trying to eat ants that are still moving. . .
