Worm salt, also known as sal de gusano in Spanish, is a traditional Mexican condiment made from ground-up dried worms, chili peppers, and salt. It is commonly used to enhance the flavor of various dishes, particularly in the regions of Oaxaca and Puebla in Mexico. The worms used in worm salt are typically the larvae of a type of moth called Hypopta agavis, which infests the agave plant. The worms are harvested, sun-dried, and then ground into a fine powder along with chili peppers and salt. Worm salt has a unique umami flavor with a hint of smokiness and is often sprinkled on fruits, vegetables, snacks, and even cocktails. It is believed to have originated from pre-Hispanic times when insects were a common food source in Mesoamerican cultures.
