One of the most famous ways to prepare snails is as escargot. In this French dish, snails are removed from their shells, cleaned, and then cooked with garlic and herb butter. The snails are often returned to their shells and broiled or baked until they are tender and infused with the rich flavors of the butter sauce.

Here's a basic method for preparing snails:
Snails can accumulate soil and debris in their digestive system, so it's essential to purge them to remove any impurities. Place the live snails in a container with clean water and a small amount of cornmeal or flour.
The snails will feed on the cornmeal or flour, which will help clean their digestive system. Allow them to purge for 2-3 days, changing the water and cornmeal daily.
After the purging process, remove the snails from the container. Rinse them thoroughly under cold running water to remove any remaining cornmeal or flour and any surface impurities.
Depending on your intended use, you can now cook the snails or process them further. For example, you can prepare snails in garlic and herb butter for escargot, use them in stews or soups, or add them to other dishes as desired.
