In late summer I gather grasshoppers (out in the woods, away from pesticides, fertilizers etc), freeze them and make curry hopper! It's sorta gross, and I mostly do it to gross out my friends.
Be honest....how many of you have tried this, thought about trying it, or would be willing to try it?! With rising food costs and looming food shortages, would this be a viable choice for a modern-day Hunter/Gatherer?! ... (more)
Only if they are grassfed.
