Pickled What?

Ok, here's a quirky entry for foodie week in Japan. We're told a Mexican custom is to pickle a poor little worm in a bottle of tequila.

Well in Okinawa, they take that one up a few notches, pickling poisonous habu snakes in some kind of liquor. And they really drink that stuff!!

I'd never make up something like this... truth is stranger than fiction, and a picture is worth a thousand words. Right, Eric? ;))

Happy ST!

I have definitely heard of it before but have yet to summon up the courage to imbibe! Nicely captured Glenn! ;-)
