What is the proper way to clean snails?

Do you mean clearing out in their system while they are still alive - such as feeding them on a cleansing diet? Or physically getting the little fellows out of the shells once cooked?

I found this Greek food site where pretty much every detail is covered. Hope it helps.

Haha, I found that link as well when I googled "cleaning snails (or preparing snails) for cooking" (whichever it was:crazy:) and I didn't post it, cause I thought you would have googled this question all ready :smiles: ..
So I left it to be answered by someone who regularly handles snails, which I don't ...

I didn't see the page about "fattening" up the snails though! That page is interesting..
