How would you deal with a spider infestation? For the people of Skuon, Cambodia, they decided to fry up the creatures and eat them.
Following a famine in the 1970s residents discovered that when the arachnids are deep fried and served with herbs on a bed of noodles or rice, it tastes similar to chicken or cod. Fair warning, you only eat the spider’s legs. Biting into the body could result in getting way too up and close and personal with the creature’s bodily fluids.
After all this spider-munching time, Skuon residents have gotten more creative, even learning how to brew wine with the critters.
