How to Eat spiders (tarantulas)
Spiders. They live around you, the sleep next to, and they hide in the corners of your room. They're considered pests by most people, but to some, then considered a delicacy. Believe or not, the strongest natural fiber known is from the silk of the Nephila spider, but that spider is nothing compared to a huge, hairy, hideous tarantula. Tarantulas have been a delicacy for years. Enjoy one of these recipes when they are hot and crispy.
