Is it okay to eat maggots?
I’ve recently been experimenting with eating various edible insects. About the only thing I haven’t tried is maggots. Is it okay to eat them? I’m guessing that as long as they are clean and cooked, it should be okay. My favourite insects are currently dried dung beetles (yes, I know that I am strange).
Yes, if your a fish!
but seriously I now live in N E Thailand (Issan area)
where they eat all this sort of thing, I’m not sure about
actual maggots, but one of my gf favourites is dung beetles,
Jaka-Jarn which is a large flying beetle, frogs, snake, gung-ten
small transparent shrimp(live) ants & ants eggs etc
but her absolute favourite is Nong wha (buffalo/cows placenta).
Not me, I stick to sausage, egg & chips, KFC, or MacDonald’s.
I rather envy people who can consistently write about food — check out this post at Malisa’s Food Blog titled Laotian/Northern Thailand meal: Isaan Sausage, Papaya Salad, and Sticky Rice.
Another food blog is Blazing Hot Wok, where I found this recipe posted as Isaan-style Sausages.
And I’ve referred to Appon’s Thai Food blog several times in the past — here is her recipe for Isan Pork Sausage (Side Grog Isan).
There are also people who delight in photographing food:

Yes, this fermented sausage is indeed one of the most delicious things that have come out of Isan, in my opinion. And yes, it is not the easiest thing to make well even though the procedure is quite simple. But it is a sausage …
