And remember, you won't get another chance to dine on these guys fir another 17 years so like the waitress down at Joe's Inn says when she brings you yer order..."Enjoy!"...

I actually tried 'em last time around in '87.
Deep fried, crispy, they sorta taste like walnuts.
They're related to shrimp and crawdads, so just take the wings and legs off and throw 'em in hot fat. A little salt and cayenne..
Or when you've fried 'em and they've cooled, dip 'em in melted chocolate.
Lots of beer helps.

Try deep fried bumble bees. Had them last year when I was in north west Yunnan province. I thought at first they were fried boiled peanuts which is another taster dish served as you select from the menu in that region. Still they tasted quite nice though.

We all had them for breakfast along with our bacon and eggs at a Folk festival once. It was accidental really. Couldn't keep them out of the frying pan. We have Wichitty grubs that taste great deep fried, but I have to compete with our tame Magpies who like them raw straight from the wild. It's not kind to deep fry them without chopping off their heads quickly first. Joy

Well, it turns out this song fits the topic--discusses several benefits to eating cicadas, including an unexpected one.

Came out around the time of the last visitation--a rap song, yet.

Cicada Serenade--by the Pheremones


They got big orange eyes they can barely focus
Some people call'em 17-year locust
But that's the wrong data
The name is cicada
And they're here now but they won't be here later
They got 4 wings but they ain't supposed to fly
They just come out the ground, have sex and die
But I can dig their rig--I like their style
Cause they may go quick but they go with a smile
Check it out (cicada noise)
Cicada serenade
Check it out (cicada noise)
Cicada serenade
Cicadas on the sidewalk, cicadas on the ground
Place looked like a little tiny Jonestown
Now I hate to see anything go to waste
And I was wondering how a cicada might taste
Cicada, potata, it sounds the same
To let 'em go to waste would be a crying shame
So I got a couple hundred of' em, took 'em inside
Put some ketchup on 'em and I ate 'em French-fried
I ate 'em all up without hesitatin'
The next thing you know I was hallucinatin'
Freakin' out (cicada noise)
Cicada serenade
Freakin' out (cicada noise)
Cicada serenade
I was out of my mind
My head was in a fog
Next thing you know I was sick as a dog
My friends came over, said "Let's get high."
I said "No way" so they said "Bye bye"
I don't need no lovely, no reefer, no cocaine
Cause I still got them cicadas buzzin' round in my brain
So eat your cicadas with every snack
Cause they can also help you say no to crack
Bugs, not drugs

Here in the DC area we have to wait another 8 years for the next big visitation by the 17- year darlings.

Anybody have any (5, 7, 17, whatever) this year?






But Jan and I are still singing the above "song".   It's our biggest hit by far.

In the eastern half of the United States, periodical cicadas come up out of the ground every 17 years when the ground warms up to 64°F. They are expected to be seen here in the Washington, DC area in May of 2013. They are large insects, about an inch and a half long, with black bodies, red eyes and delicate wings. There are far too many to count. You see them everywhere--on the sidewalk, on the trees, on the porch, on the street.

Cicadas of the same life cycle are known collectively as a single "brood". There are 12 broods of 17-year cicadas. As a result, it is possible to find cicadas in almost any year by traveling to the appropriate location. The group expected in the capital region this spring, known as Brood 2, are the offspring of cicadas last seen in 1996.

.......
Specific groups of periodical cicadas are called "Broods." Entomologists have devised a chart that documents the emergence of these groups. There are twelve "Broods" that appear in the northeastern part of the United States in different years. This year, the lucky area is Brood X. Brood X refers to certain parts of fifteen states (DE, GA, IL, IN, KY, MD, MI, NC, NJ, NY, OH, PA, TN, VA, WVA) and Washington DC. These states will witness the emergence of the 17-year periodical cicadas sometime around May or June of 2004.

(Reference to 2004 is because that was the year of the article- I wanted to get the brood number)

sorry for any confusion. This year is Brood II, 2004 was Brood X.

Yup, you got it. This is Brood II, 2004 was Brood X.    Looks like 2004 had the largest range of any of the 17-year cicadas.   But this year will be no slouch in range--second on the list.

The return of the cicadas is great news as far as I'm concerned.   And I'm not even a bird.

I remember a plague of crickets in Austin, Texas, years ago. They were everywhere.

In a cafe popular with the University students, a man was hassling the young, female short order cook, who was grilling hamburgers.
She served his burger with a top layer of crickets.

Remembering a wonderful performance of the Cicada Rap by Ron and his True Love from several years ago.

Like Amos, I am culturally very limited. Never did go to the Bug Feast my ex-hubby continues to sponsor every year. Not just cicadas, bugs and grubs of every kind.

I still remember that, about the time I was in junior high, I started to hear of the availability of chocolate covered ants. For several years I had occasional thoughts of obtaining some and sharing them with my older sister before telling her what they were. I'm fairly sure she would have recycled them when she found out.
