Tender & delicious, these snails offer a cleaner flavor and far superior texture to canned snails. They are sold with the shells on, ready to briefly saute or stir fry over high heat, or top with garlic-herb butter and bake. Pre-shelled fresh escargot is also available.
These snails are the petit gris variety (aka little gray snail, Cornu aspersum/Helix aspersa) which is smaller & more tender than the gros gris/big gray snails commonly sold in cans. Between the species and the absence of the canning process, these snails are significantly tenderer than most escargot on the market.
These snails are raised in greenhouses and fed a diet of wild-foraged greens (clover, burdock, sorrel, and dandelion), then finished on a diet of acorns and spent beer grains, resulting in a flavor that is herbaceous, nutty, and meaty.
Each pound of shelled escargot will provide approximately 12-16 servings.
Snails are a healthy, sustainable, high protein (1 gram per snail!), low fat food. They’re also high in iron & potassium.
