A convicted cannibal is seeking love after promising that his people-eating days are over, reports news.com.au.

An Indonesian man, Sumanto, was jailed after he dug up an old woman's body for a "cheap and tasty meal". "She was delicious," he told the AFP from his room at a Muslim mental rehabilitation centre in rural Central Java. "I love all meat ... all types of meat as long as it's cooked. But I don't eat people anymore."

After a lengthy stint in prison, the former farmer now longs for the taste of love. "What is love? How can I describe it when I've never experienced it, never tasted it?" he said.

Sumanto said that all he eats these days is spinach in a bid to be accepted back into normal village life. He is even prepared to survive on "water, vitamins and minerals" alone if it will help him find love.

"Meat is definitely nicer than vegetables, but if there's no meat I can make do with grass. It's healthy and I could braise or stir-fry it to make it taste good," he said.
