DailyDirt: Strange Foods
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
With the holidays approaching, there are lots of recipes and cooking ideas floating around online. But it’s way more interesting to us to read up on weird foods that are out there (not turduckens). We’re making a list. We’re not checking it twice. Most of these foods are not nice at all, and some are just gross. Bon appetit!
A 2,400-year-old old soup has been discovered in China. I wonder how long modern soup cans will last? Mmm. Mmm. Good. [url] Russians are working on mice that can produce milk with human breast milk proteins. And eventually, these human milk genes will be commercially available in rabbits, goats and cows. [url] Until other mammals start making human milk, though, there’s always milk trading groups on Facebook. But the FDA doesn’t recommend this process, either. [url] Maybe people should be eating more insects. It’s not just for reality TV shows. [url] If the thought of eating insects isn’t appealing, it’s a lot more appetizing to eat meat from animals that feel no pain. It’s just a couple steps away from the restaurant at the end of the universe. [url] For the holidays, Estonians are singled out for their blood-sausage-eating tradition on Christmas. Some Taiwanese pig blood popsicles sound good to me, too. [url]
We’d love to hear about some more weird foods in the comments, too.
