Milk-fed snails

A snack often served at the Roman baths
  • 20 snails
  • 2 pt (1,1L) milk
  • garum
  • Salt
  • Oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine
  • Remove the membranes from the snails to enable them to come out of their shells easier
  • Put the snails into a pot and cover with the milk
  • Leave for 2 days. Once an hour take the waste material the snails produce from the milk. (The servants can do this) Change the milk daily
  • After the seven days, the snails will have absorbed the milk, and they will not be able to get back into their shells
  • Remove the now fattened snails from their shells and fry in oil
  • Serve with the anchovy essece and the wine.
