I give no guarantees on the safety or suitablility of woodlice for consumption. If you use these recipes then you do so at your own risk.
These recipes have been provided by a "Wild Foods" enthusiast. I couldn't bring myself to eat these creatures, however for those interested in survivalist foods here are the details. Apparently they smell of fish as they cook and add a crunchy texture and a slight fishy taste to the food. - Perhaps they should be mixed in a blender after killing and before cooking?
Woodlice are raised on clean paper and fed with potato for a number of days before cooking. Before cooking they must be killed. This occurs instantly by placing in a sieve and dropping it into a pot of boiling water.
In view of the size of woodlice I would suggest that it wouldn't be a profitable exercise to rely on them to provide enough food to survive on.
Mix flour and baking powder in a bowl. Add butter and rub into dry ingredients. Add bacon, onion and woodlice, mix in and then add all the milk. Mix - the dough should be soft enough to roll out onto the bench top. Add extra milk or flour as required.
Roll/press out into a 20-24cm square, cut into nine squares and bake at 200C for 10-15 minutes.
