The Achatine snail originated in East Africa, but, through commerce and trade, has spread into Asia where it is now commercially bred. These snails can grow quite large, weighing up to a pound! For the purpose of escargot, they are cultivated to the same size as the European Helix snail that westerners have been eating for centuries.
Imported from Indonesia, this product enables you to make escargot at home. Each can contains 96 Achatine snails (unshelled) preserved in a brine of water, salt, pepper, laurel, cloves and citric acid. Easy to prepare, just put each snail in a shell and garnish with a butter sauce. Put them in the oven and serve as soon as the butter starts to sizzle.
Shells are sold separately.

How We Ship
Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality.
For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.
Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
