  • "Witchetty grubs are traditionally eaten live and raw. Their meat is rich in protein and makes for a highly nutritious snack if you’re tramping through the bush. Raw witchetties have a subtle, slightly sweet flavour and a liquid centre." - pilotguides.com

  • A large white grub (the larva of certain moths and other insects) which infests the roots and stem of the witchetty bush, from which it is extracted for use as food by Aboriginals and as bait by fishermen.

    Supposedly they taste nutty when roasted.
