Think these snails are edible? I was on my computer one day and spied this rather cheeky snail crawling up outside the glass sliding door in our home office. Visions of this plate of escargots crossed my mind, but decided I shouldn’t risk it. There are lots of snails out there that probably AREN’T good for you. I still would like to visit a rice paddy that has lots of kuhol or small edible snails that are sold in markets… and I have always wondered who the first adventurous (or desperate) person was who decided to cook them (and other unusual types of food like crickets and ant eggs).
