Eating In Korea: Silkworm Chrysali

I would describe the texture as meaty, not bad. But they taste like wet wool.

In Korea, it’s fairly typical to see street stands with woks full of these little guys. It smells somewhat like damp, scorching wool.

I’m pretty open to trying new flavors, but this one didn’t make my list of favorites, sorry to say.

I imagine that these cooked pupae were a byproduct of the silk-making process and gradually grew on people who didn’t have a whole lot of foods to choose from.
