Sabarot snails/escargots are detached from their shells, and packaged separately. For each order of Sabarot Snail/Escargots, you will get a tin of the snail meat, and a separate container with empty shells. This makes the escargot ready and easy to cook and enjoy.
Snail isn’t an all that strange food for Filipinos, and these ones from Sabarot are of very high quality. You might think they’ll taste and feel slimy, but its texture and flavor are actually far from that. They’re meaty, chewy, and delicious, with a texture reminiscent of clams. Its flavor is enjoyable and could be compared to chicken and fish. It has a pleasant earthiness to it, evocative of mushrooms.
Here’s a very simple recipe for escargot that will definitely impress your dinner guests:
Sabarot was born in 1819, when Jean-Pierre Sabarot bought a mill in Haute-Loire, France. Over 200 years, and seven generations later, the brand has become a benchmark in quality grains. With traditional know-how combined with modern technology and a respect for high standards, Sabarot continues to blaze the trail.
An unopened can of snail meat will keep in its tin for up to a year. Keep it in a cool, dry, dim area, like the pantry or a cupboard. Once opened, use immediately.
