Balut – a boiled duck embryo from Cambodia
Do you fancy eggs? me to – just prefer to eat them before the embryo inside has a peck an feathers. The people in Cambodia apparently think differently, as a duck-egg-delicacy called balut is a great treat loved by the locals. The trick of preparing balut is to let the the embryo inside the egg to develop until the bird inside is nearly ready to see the daylight. When the embryo inside is right, the egg is boiled and served with a pich of salt on top.
The Cambodian locals enjoy their Balut normally as a night time snack, accompanied with a cold beer.
Rare frogs + blender = gutted frog cocktail
Here’s yet another odd consumable, I really think the world could live without (you can blame me for being narrow minded). These frog cocktail are made by skinning live Telmatobius frogs and droppin them into a blender with other ingredients. This health-drink, which is said to have aphrodisiac properties, is Â§mighty popular at the Andes.
The frogs used for the cocktail are endangered species as well, and therefore the local officials are trying to stop the tradition, with little success so far.
