Yellowjacket Soup
-----------------
Large yellowjacket nest, filled with grubs

Loosen and set aside all uncovered grubs. Heat the nest with the remaining
grubs over fire until paper-like covering parches. Pick out the grubs and
brown them over the fire with those grubs that were set aside. Cook the
browned grubs in water to make soup. Add grease to taste.
