    You mean they still haven’t found a proper recipe to eat them?

    I am amazed that nobody has found a way to make fake burgers out of Textured Jellyfish Protein much like the Textured Vegetable Protein that is used to make faux-beef TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) created from soy beans.
    Fake bacon bits and breakfast sausages made of TVP are quite good. More than 95% of the bacon bits served in restaurants of made of TVP and nobody notices.
