My brother Thomas is nature himself. He went out fishing crayfish before he came out to visit at the summer house. And not only did he fish crayfish. He brought them alive in a bucket to show the kids.
Here he is holding a biology lesson about crayfish for the kids, and do I have to tell you that they thought it was VERY interesting?
Nelly even dared to hold one later on. Me to but when it moved a little I screamed so loud and almost dropped it that the rest of the family thought the house was on fire or that I had stumbled over something dead. I won't hold an alive crayfish again...
We boiled the crayfish. I always thought this was difficult procedure but it is actually dead simple. Water with LOTS of salt and dill, bring to boil. Add one crayfish at the time. They die instantly but it is important to wait for the water to come to boil again after you have put one in. If not, the crayfish will be in pain. Boil the crayfish for about 10-15 minutes, let cool. Finished!
And in the evening we had a crayfish party, Swedish traditional style. Yum!
