Well yes, I already told you, my Double and I are great fans of SNAILS!!!!
Of any size, of any variety and cooked in any way... in short..... WE LOVE SNAILS!!!

For some time I had read about snails cooked as if they were a meat stew, with potatoes, onions and a bit of sauce..... this was the right opportunity!!!!
Imagining them extremely tasty, I made sure that their flavor did not dissipate and therefore I used my wonderful Taijine , created by hand with excellent raw materials.
Naturally, I boiled them first, over a very low heat, to let them come out of the shell, and I drained them well.
Then, in the taijine tray I prepared a sauté with plenty of onions and olive oil, I briefly browned the diced potatoes and added a few spoonfuls of tomato sauce.
I seasoned with salt and chilli (plenty) and added the boiled snails.
I covered and cooked, over very low heat, for about 1\2 hour, checking that there was enough sauce and stirring every now and then....... DIVINEEEEEEE!!!!
I'm not telling you how good it is!!!! both the snails so fleshy and sweet, and the potatoes and onions.... with that sauce which, collected from the cone-shaped lid of the taijine, did not disperse even an atom of flavor and taste!!!! I know... you're already salivating...... so let's move on to the recipe!!!!
