Jarrampa (Cherabin)

Marshia Cook

Jarrampa are yabbies or cherabin – they are very tasty to eat
but a challenge to catch because of those claws. One old woman
had a clever way of catching them – she put meat between her
toes and put them into the billabong. When the jarrampa started
nibbling at the meat, she wrapped her feet in a cloth and then
put them into a bucket then took them back to the campfire to
prepare a delicious meal.
