Mirjam...I keep wondering how many people (like Al there) aren't quite sure if this is for real or not *LOL Hey, if anyone needs ants...come to TX, we have those "BIG OLE" Fire Ants! (yuck!!!) Thanks for the chuckle!
Thanks for making me laugh.
Hey everybody, chocolate-covered Ants are very good...they taste like chocolate-covered raisins! I wouldn't have the patience to clean 'em, but remember the chocolate-covered raisin bit the next time you're at the concession stand at the movies!
When I was younger I remember that chocolate covered ants and bees were quite the craze. My daring mother bought some ants and I'll never forget watching her eat them and trying (unsuccesfully)to get me to eat some, too. 35 years (or so) later I still can see her clear as day standing at the counter 'crunching' those things.;o
Imaginative and Hilarious, thank you Mirjam! "(Unhappy ants are liable to go sour before processing.)" I don't know where or how you got this, but this is GOOD!
Rated 5-star for the humor! I have an abundance of fire ants here. I wonder if that would make this dish "hot and spicy"?!
It's a sick world and we are all happy people!!! LOL!
Mirg, thank you for posting this wonderful recipe. Combining the carnivore course with the desert course saves time time. That's EATING time, not preperation time. But the delicious chocolaty crunch makes the prep time worthwhile. Be sure to count the ants carefully to maintain the correct ant/chocolate balance. I followed your advice and left the entrails in. Not only did it save time, it enriched the dish and made it more healthful with the added protein. I did add a teaspoon of vanilla and a half cup of outrageously expensive rasberry liqueur which I think added depth of flavor. Next time I think I'll try Godiva dark chocolate liqueur with a dash of cinnamon. I'm also considering adapting this recipe to take advantage of Minnesota's abundance of our natural resource of mosquitoes, our state bird. They're big enough to mate with helicopters, so the prep time should be shorter as not as many will be needed. Hunting Minnesota's mosquitoes can be dangerous as they are quite aggresive, which makes them highly expensive. I haven't found an economical source for culinary mosquitoes. But the expense would be worthwhile for such an exceptional treat. When I make this recipe with mosquitoes, I think I'll add a quart of vodka to the recipe.
I needed a good laugh today. Long day at work.I live in Canada so you can just keep your fire ants. I have heard they are quite bad. lol. I think we need a good joke in our lives now a days. Well thanks for the laugh. Bye for now
Actually North Australian green ants are quite yummy - they taste like lemon. You pick them up and just bite their backsides off LOL. A bit of chocolate however wouldn't hurt - white chocolate?
