Mark’s “Worm Burrito”

My interest in letting people share images with their comments (see my recent “Adding Images to Comments“) was in large part due to an email I received from our good pal “Mark from Kansas” the other day. He took it upon himself to create his own worm composting culinary masterpiece – in effect, tossing his hat in the ring with me and Larry (if you are wondering what on earth I am talking about, please read these posts: “Worm Composting Pizza?“, “Vermicomposting Pancakes“). Here is what he wrote:

Worm Burrito

I call it:
The Worm Burrito
“A nice brown paper toilet paper tube, stuffed with malodorous potato peelings, nose watering water melons, with bad broccoli and stinky celery all served on a bed of used coffee grounds”.
There, top that!
Mark

😆

I LOVE it! Unlike Larry and I, Mark clearly put some serious effort into the overall presentation of his vermi-feast (I think the technical term is “plating”) – so he definitely gets points for that! It remains to be seen what the worms think, but hopefully Mark will keep us posted!

Anyway – apart from wanting to share that with everyone, Mark also thought all the worm recipes flying around these days might inspire others to try their hands at becoming vermi-chefs. And THAT, my friends, is a big part of why I want people to be able to share images on the site!

SO, it’s time to get creative and see what tasty treats you can come up with for your wiggling friends! Next, snap a pic of your dish and attach it to your comment (again, you can learn how to do so >>here<<). Who knows - perhaps we can even make a contest out of this! Thanks again to Mark (and of course Larry) for the inspiration!

    That Kansas culinary school teaches the best plating techniques in the vermi world!Mark is a plating Master.
    That one has me thinking of making some manicotti! But one neat thing i noticed to give someone ideas,is coffee grounds can even be made to look like caviar! Sounds like i need to polish up on my plating skills. I did have a nice add under my pizza. But when it comes out the bottom, I hope you can’t read it any more!
    I gotta go raid the fridge now!

    okay! i just have to test this new toy out! So i’m going to post a picture of the pizza! I have to bury it, so it can get ready for the worms to eat! So hope this test works.[img]https://www.redwormcomposting.com/images/worm-pizza1.JPG[/img]

    Hiya Larry – looks like you need to click on the image of the pizza again before you use the web address. You should see the image on a blank white page with no sign of Vermicomposters anywhere to be seen.

    ***UPDATE***
    I fixed your link for you, Larry – but now we have the other problem rearing its ugly head – the image is far too large.
    I think that at least for the sake of our mini contest, I can probably fix any images myself and simply host them on the RWC site. I will upload a smaller version of your pizza for you.

    OK Larry – I have edited the size of your image and simply uploaded it to the RWC site. This is probably a lot easier than getting people to try and fiddle with the images themselves. SO, I will continue to do this for anyone encountering difficulties!

    OH – and how are the worms liking your pizza by the way? They munching on it?

    Sorry Bentley,i think i have something going on computerwise.I did figure out that it was 540x4something.But when i tried to link to the photo fixer link it just tells me webpage expired.
    But i know they’re under the pizza.I just didn’t want to break it open yet! Probably will in a month.I had to fill my bin higher.Any one who doesn’t know how a flowthrough system works.You harvest it through the bottom.Sometimes using a hand rake or something of the sort.But my worm activity is making it work by itself! I have to get my bin up to a foot deeper to see if it still works! You can see where worms are by using a spray bottle on mist.And see a sudden movement.It’s pretty neat.They’re definitely laying beside it!
    Any way.I have to hit the farmers market for some secret rotten ingredients. I’m gonna be making a dessert item!

    This is hilarious, I never thought I would be excited to see what kind of cullinary creations people could come up with for worms. This looks like an interesting challenge to the site’s viewers, I really can’t wait to see what’s next!

    Bently, if you are going to turn this into a mini-contest, maybe the prize could be a pound of worms, a mini-bin, or something along those lines.

    I do the same thing for our rabbit, but with fresh food. She thanks me by turning that into worm food pellets. 😉

    Here’s some California cuisine using certifiable (not certified) organic produce.
    Steak tartare on a bed of corn silk. Served with moldy veggies & fruit and decapitated-slug-topped pita, all suitably well-aged. Manure-fed worms guaranteed to contain fresh horse manure in their digestive tract.

    Sorry about that, I should have the directions about photos more carefully.

    No worries guys,
    I’m just going to be manually fixing/uploading images for people when necessary – no biggie! Will take care of your sizing shortly, Andrew.
    Thanks!

    UPDATE – There ya go! That looks like a beautiful dish, Andrew! The worms were a nice touch as well!

    Wow, Larry! That looks like quite the feast!

    I forgot about the carrot in the center tamale.It was lookin’ a little rough.And i placed all three in my bin to see what happens.I’m guessing the tortilla will go first.
    And also, on the whole plate of items.You could only still eat the tortilla’s.Every thing else was yuk! But i just like watching the tortilla disappear.My worms may have dentures.Because they can chow down!

  1. Larry and Andrew,
    Your use of colors and variety of textures create a superb blend that is both appealing to the eye and to the appetite of the worms.
