Bebbux - snails!!!
Whilst shopping this morning for vegetables at my local vegetable man, my son saw 'il-bebbux' snails in maltese. Here in Malta after the first rains alot of people go in fields to catch the snails, they fast them for some time and after they clean them in salt water or sea water. When all this is done they are cooked , boiled with herbs and wine and also as a salad with lots of garlic, fresh, tomatoes, basil and olive oil.
