Cricket Harvest Day!
I couldn't find a company that sells cricket powder made from crickets NOT fed corn, gluten or soy so I decided to raise some myself!
I procrastinated following through with harvesting them a bit too long because I was squeamish about the whole process of catching them, putting them to sleep in the freezer and cooking them...
When I started to hear less chirping coming from the basement I knew I'd better hop to it or they were all going to die of natural causes at their ripe old age.
The harvest was small, but I did manage to yield enough powder to make a smoothie or add to some porridge. It's the perfect amount to test out whether my reaction to the commercial cricket powder I tried was to the actual crickets themselves or to the soy they were fed. (More on that here!)
