   *  To Blanch Escargot: Blanching is the first step  in  preparing
   escargot dishes.Fill a 3 quart pan half full of water (enough  to
   cover the snails).When water boils,drop in the rinsed snails.Boil
   vigorously for 3 minutes (no more or the snails will get
   tough).Remove snails and rinse in cold water.Remove nails from shells
   with a toothpick.Place snails in bowl containing a mixture of half
   water and half vinegar for two hours.Snails are now ready to simmer
   in sauces.They may be cut into two or three pieces,if
   desired.Blanched snails,may be frozen.Note: Do not save snail
   shells,which are fragile.
