Tip of the Week

Witchetty/Witjuti Grubs are just that: tasty grubs are like borers and found in live wood in stems, trunks, and roots of certain wattles. They are good sources of calcium and iron. An acquired taste like oysters, but I cannot eat them raw. Depending upon the wattle, they have different flavors. I have had them barbecued many times, without their heads. It`s a cultural thing like eating prawns with heads still on. But I do prefer them headless and I love them. They are hard to get and available in tins as soup.

Witjuti Grub Soup
Don`t even attempt to make this soup from scratch. Hassle your local deli to import this delicious soup in cans, and stun your next dinner party guests with authentic Australian. Add the following ingredients that you have processed to the tinned product:
* Garlic to your taste
* 2 teaspoons of peanut butter
* 2 x sliced and cooked onions
* 4 x sticks of celery
