Fried Flying Ants
Amelia and Abby brought flying ants home from school (just two) with idea that they could be fried and eaten. Apparently some tribes in Kenya eat flying ants on a regular basis. First Amelia and Abby removed the wings.
Two flying ants being fried with butter. How do you really know when a flying ant is completely fried?

On the fork and into the mouth!
The surprisingly positive reaction to the taste of fried flying ants.
Well, the pictures about say it all. I don't know if I should be more surprised that Amelia wanted to try eating a flying ant, that she said it tasted, "good, like bacon," or that Malin knew enough about cooking to fry it in butter.
