While we're still in kinunut mode, here's anothe Baler delicacy - Katid. According to Poppo Olag, this edible worm is called "shipworm" in English. It looks like an albino earthworm that oozes milk-like secretions. Baler's eternal Best Pulutan are mostly found on tree trunks and branches submerged under freshwater rivers. They say that the taste depends on the the type of wood where they were taken. I have never tasted a katid in my life but there were times that I was almost tempted to sample one just for research purposes. Belinda Bright, the whitest sext star in Philippine showbiz gulped a 4-incher during an Extra Challege shoot in Baler (then still known as Extra Extra). It is easier to prepare than a kinunut. Just put them raw in a bowl including their whitish secretions, squeeze in some kidya and add some siling kutikut and you have a katid special. Pwera Katid!
