I can't say as I would ever try it.. And to say the least it seems a bit disturbing to me but I came across a youtube video by mugsyjeff where he made Hachinoko fritters. Hachinoko is made from bee larva. To me it sounds repulsive.. But for those that want to get the full experience from the great bee.. Maybe its for you. And since this is posted in the taboo, the strange it was only fitting to mention this.

Many cultures around the planet eat bee brood.   Sometimes, it is more valued than the honey.

I tasted my first larvae 3 weeks ago.  I had gone into my hive to check on things for the spring.. and they had build cells below the honey super, but above the brood box.  The cells broke open when I pulled the boxes apart - and exposed a heckuva large larvae...  I ate her - just for the experience of tasting it..  She wasn't bad at all.

Hypervitaminosis A is a painful and potentially deadly disease caused by too much vitamin A in the diet.  It can be brought on by eating the livers of carnivores, especially the livers of seals and polar bears.  Bee brood is also very high in true vitamin A, not the mostly useless kind of vitamin A known in the health food bizz as beta carotene.   

Bones from ancient Africans have been discovered that show signs of death from hypervitiminosis A.  It is though that this is the direct result of eating TOO MUCH bee brood.  Eat everything, but eat everything in moderation.

 cheesy well, at least I can say I won't be dying from too much vitamin A. Liver and bee brood are on my list of probably won't consume foods. Lol
