    So I just bought 1000 large superworms for my animals, and I noticed something funny..did you know people eat them? I shit you not. Google it if you want to laugh..mmmm, yummy. Superworms are an excellent replacement for croutons in your salad..I read that, I swear to god..

    My Gran wouldn't eat Mackerel as she said they lived on all the dirty rubbish in the sea.

    If I did get nematodes then I guess I still have them... if you chew them they stop squirming so much :)

    I read a recipe that substituted slaters (woodlouse /pill bug) for shrimp, they said you wouldn't know the difference.
