I’ve had ant eggs, rodents in a stew, and “jaeow” that supposedly contained Cow feces (literally my mom said “cow chit”), but I would NEVER try that in my life. UGH!
Called “pa-yit” in Burmese, they come out in winter and are crunchy and delicious fried in peanut oil with a bit of seasoning, crushed ginger and garlic – wonderful aroma!
The female, identified by a black spike at the bottom end, has an abdomen full of eggs, much preferred to the male.
They do need to be cleaned properly, winged, gutted and extremeties trimmed. I would most certainly not try “cow chit”.
