The funniest thing happened this morning. Eusebio and Marcos decided to search for cargols while waiting for me to return from my errand. I was off early this morning, and upon my return I saw the famous Eusebio with a yellow mesh bag in his hand and Marcos straggling behind him. Behold all cargol lovers, snails picked straight from the wild.
|Nicely bunched together|
They went to an empty and overgrown grassy lot and hand picked cargols de mongetes. "The best" he claims because they are found in the wild and not farmed. Eusebio says he is going to teach me how to wash and cook them, yeah!
Step 1 : Purgar-- purge their poo poo by feeding them flour to cleanse their digestive system or just let them poop for three days without feeding.
They must be left hanging for three days so they can get rid of their "caquetes," in other words they eliminate their stools.
p.s. They call me Patri, Catalan for Patty.
