Remember the April bug? (link) Well, these are May bugs but they came early, a whole bucket we found, all those in the picture were here in April.
.
We do have a few June bugs now too, there aren't very many yet so the birds can eat them about as fast as they appear.
.
May bugs have another name, after the place they live in. You see they live in the mud and are also called mud bugs.
.
Southern people eat these mud bugs. They are boiled with a ears of corn and whole potatoes (enough for every eater to have at least one) and highly seasoned. The tail meat can be breaded and deep fried, put in etouffee (link) or gumbo, and a lot of other Southern dishes.
..
The best way to eat the boiled ones is to bite the head off and suck the juice out. Then split the tail and eat the meat that was inside. Some people dip the tail meat in cocktail sauce or tartar sauce.
