I've caught my snails and I'm purging them a tub with some greens and herbs from my balcony garden. I'm not sure what herbs snails eat so I put in some parsley, sage and mint. The purpose of this is to firstly flush out any toxins the snails may have (from eating slug pellets) and secondly, I'm hoping to flavor the snails internally with the herbs. It's been a couple of days now so I think my snail farm is ready for it's first harvest.

I'm thinking boil, frying pan, butter, garlic and parsley. I've also got my eye on a couple of woodlouse as a side dish. Not too sure about this, I suspect they'll taste like prawns.
