Though most parts of the kava plant contain psychoactive kavalactones, the root is used most frequently.

Kava 2

In addition to selling kava tea, Whole Foods (and many other grocery stores and health food stores) also kava tinctures and supplements that are used to promote relaxation and reduce stress.

Kava 3

I bought some kava tea (made by Yogi) from Whole Foods, and some kava paste from konakavafarm.com. I wasn’t a big fan of the tea.

Kava 4

Kava tea, in action! I used two tea bags to see if I could notice the effects more clearly. I go hard.

Kava 5

Kava paste. Though it looks and smells pretty unappealing, it actually has a relatively neutral, earthy flavor. The label says that “tak[ing] two pea sized servings at a time [will promote] a relaxed, empathogenic experience.” I’m not sure I agree with the “empathogenic” part (the term is typically used in conjunction with substances like MDMA and 2C-B), but whatever.

Durian 1

Durians are large, spiky fruits that typically weigh several pounds. Though they are abundant in Asia, they can be challenging to find in the US and are typically not very fresh.

Durian 2

Frozen durian is surprisingly tasty!

Durian 3

Durian 3: Durian is a popular ingredient in sweets and treats — while I was walking around C Mart Supermarket in Boston’s Chinatown, I saw durians made into sweets and incorporated into “wife cakes,” a type of traditional Cantonese pastry.

Boiling vegetables for stew.

Mopane 8

Boiled vegetables + immersion blender + peanut butter.

Mopane 9

Spicy peanut soup, with worms. I’m guessing this isn’t how it’s supposed to look.

Column Photos: The Roaming Fork | Crickets

Posted by thetuftsdaily on February 27, 2013 under Arts & Living, Columns | Comments are off for this article

These photos accompany the “Cooking Jiminy“ installment of Melissa MacEwen’s column, The Roaming Fork. To see the recipe she used for this meal, click here!

Crickets 1

The crickets arrived in a box decorated …with pictures of crickets. It even had air vents built into it.

Crickets 2
Frying them up!

Crickets 3
I put them on paper towels so they would be less greasy.

Crickets 4
After I had cooked the crickets, I stir fried them with a spicy, curry butter.

Crickets 5
Close up!

Crickets 6
The crickets were delicious with a salad — the slight bite of the greens complemented the tang of the crickets and the spice of their sauce.
