Not even going to look at the linky ( when I tried to type linky on the iPad, it kept changing it to kinky - tut)

Nor me even though such things are readily available here. You can buy freezer packs of snails in the supermarkets!

Had a look at the recipe, as we have a glut of snails.

 

The vinegar puts me off - there are much better ways of eating snails IMO

eeekWhat, blindfolded, drunk, as a dare or a means of torture? big_laugh 

Each to their own, of course, but personally flaming_nora, I couldn't think of much worse.  Snail soup with celery sticks to dip in.....now that would be one of my worst nightmares big_laugh

Oh well, it takes all sorts to make up this lovely world big_hug

Same as whelks and winkles.  But need to purge them for 7 to 10 days before hand.   Lidded bucket with lettuce leaves in, cleaned out every day.

 

24 snails (purged and boiled)
1 tbsp. parsley
1 tbsp. garlic, chopped fine
1 tbsp. chopped shallots
1 tbsp. dry white wine
Pinch salt
Dash pepper
1/4 lb. butter
Thoughly mix all ingredients, except snails. Take the snails from shells. Place a dab of the butter mixture in each shell, a snail, then cover with butter mixture. Arrange on plates; place in hot oven. When butter starts to bubble, about 10 minutes, they are ready to serve. Crusty bread good for moping up juices..
