Milling your Natural crickets is a great way to incorporate more protein into your food and/or to disguise the look of a cricket for those eaters who don't want to see a whole cricket in their food.
In a home food processor (i.e. Magic Bullet), you can grind our crickets into a powder in a matter of seconds. If you want your crickets to add texture to your baking, only mill a few seconds to get a coarsely ground cricket. If you don't want or need the texture, mill longer to get a finer powder.

Depending how finely you grind your crickets, the volume will reduce by roughly half from the whole state. In other words, to make a cup of cricket flour, you need two cups of crickets.
