Ginataang Kuhol

Ginataang Kuhol – Have you tried preparing and cooking snails? If you have not, do not worry because the process is simple –just make sure that you wash the snails well; I use a brush to clean them up. A toothbrush is a nice tool to use because you can brush all the sides of the snail with ease. I also soak the snails in tap water for 3 hours before cooking.
It will be better if you can create an opening in the “apex” of the shell. This will help you eat the snail easily later on, without the need of a toothpick to pick the contents of the shell. Unlike kuhol, the shell of sea snails are tougher. The apex is the pointy part of the snail opposite to the huge opening. I did try to do it, but it took me som time and I did exert some effort, so I decided not to do it. I just used a toothpick to pick the snail. It tasted really good!
