Snails…I mean, escargot

Finally got around to eating the snails. I keep them in a bucket, capped with a colander, starving, for four days. Then my friend Severine came over and we boiled some water. My sister’s French in-laws said parboiling, so parboil we did. After that, we shelled them and let them soak in salty water for about an hour. Then sauteed garlic and olive oil, threw them in and snails turned into escargot. I didn’t bother to put them back in their shells or on the escargot plates–we ate them from the pan. They were chewy, but the garlic sauce was delicious.
