I like to think I'm adventurous when it comes to canning. I'm game to put just about anything in a jar.
But my adventurous nature pales in comparison to this fascinating little ditty over at a website called Buzzfeed entitled 30 Canned Foods You Never Knew Existed. They're right, I had no idea most of these existed. Thankfully.
For example, consider this: roasted scorpions! So nice in a salad!
Or bamboo worms (BBQ flavor!). The perky company trademark says "A tasty nutritious bug snack!"
Silkworm pupae, anyone? (Notice the fancy toothpicks in use.)
For the discriminating southwest palate: creamed armadillo (on the half-shell).
Never one to waste anything, how about pork brains in milk gravy? Don't eat this if you're watching your cholesterol, though... a serving has 3500 mg.
Canned tongues. Waste not, want not, I always say.
For a little crunch, try red curry grasshoppers.
And here I thought pea soup was exotic!
Go check out the rest of their repertoire. Exciting stuff.
