eating carnivorous plants

I've made this a few times, best results have always been with N. x ventrata, which has a nice neutral flavour and a bit of sweetness. 'Lady Pauline' is okay tasting as well. I tried N. albomarginata recently and it was gross, to hairy and the pitchers are quite woody. I always just stuffed the pichers with sticky rice and covered with coconut milk. Pretty tasty, but I never felt like the pitchers actually added all that much, they're just a handy vessel to steam in.

This is so cool! I’m tempted to try but I definitely won’t make as many as were in the video, my poor ventricosa wouldn’t have any pitchers left o_O

I think I saw people talking about this video but I didn't want to watch it since it felt clickbait-y. I've read about people steaming sticky rice in pitchers but I don't think the actual pitcher is consumed. It is similar to how banana leaves are used as a vessel to steam sticky rice. You don't eat the banana leaf.

Feeling kinda hungry let me just cut off an eddy pitcher real quick

Also about the insect bodies and fluids, cleaning it properly and steaming them would definitely help, but just thinking about it is kind of gross lol
