Great surprise Avi =) My mother-in-law was just gathering some of these to cook, but turned out there was too much pollution in the area for them to be safely eaten.

To eat snails, let them feed on corn meal for at least 24-48 hours before cooking. This may take care of the "pollution" but if it is everywhere, all food in the area would be unsafe to eat, wouldn't it?
