Just like many of nature’s creations, even cicadas are edible. Here are a couple of recipes to make use of all those cicadas buzzing around.
HOW TO DRY ROAST CICADAS
Place cicadas on a cookie sheet and roast for 10 to 15 minutes at 225 degrees F. Cooking time will vary depending on size and water levels. Check your cicadas when you remove them from the oven. They should be a soft dry consistency, a bit like a nut. If they are still moist inside, they should be roasted for longer.
