Last week we were given a bag of Mopani worms because we were curious about them. I'd heard that they are quite delicious and that they are easy to prepare and full of protein and everything that is good. While I wasn't about to go running to pick them off the Mopani tree, I wasn't put off by the bag of worms we received.
The worms came to us dried up and shriveled in a plastic bag.

We prefer the original recipe, without the tomatoes.
I'm guessing the mopani worms were a hit for us. Not something I'd order at a restaurant over filet mignon, but not something I'd turn my head to. If I ever didn't want one, I know Aiden would eat his portion and mine, with no problem whatsoever.
