    Trinkets's Note:

    When you are craving something with lots of butter and garlic and perhaps something a little out of the ordinary! Believe it or not, the kids all love this dish. This is the best recipe we have found to cook snails. It's from The Joy of Cooking. Use the snail butter in Snail Butter. Serve as an appetizer with plenty of hot bread.
