The process of catching frogs for nourishment. The amphibious frog is a good source of protein and can be prepared in a number of ways. Usually only the legs are used in meals, but the whole frog can be used, as in frog soup. Here's how you catch your dinner:
- Find a small pitchfork or frog gig and attach it to a broomstick
- Get a semi-powerful flashlight, this is what you will use to blind the frogs.
- Go to a nearby pond or lake where you can hear lots of croaking.
- Walk around the edge quietly, shining the flashlight on the edge of the water.
- Once you spot a large enough frog, thrust the gig into the frog as fast as possible.
- If you are successful, you will have a wiggling frog on your gig.
- Continue hunting for frogs until you have a suitable amount for a meal.
Don't catch more than you're going to eat! Because of this gruesome
process, you probably won't be able to stomach more than two or three. If you're a beginner
, try frying up one frog and see what you think first.
