Jan 13, 2009: Snail Caviar

caviar

SYLLABICATION: cav·i·ar
PRONUNCIATION: kv-är, käv-
VARIANT FORMS: also cav·i·are
NOUN: The roe of a large fish, especially sturgeon, that is salted, seasoned, and eaten as a delicacy or relish.

Move over Sturgeon, there's a new roe on the hors d'oeuvres... Snail Caviar.



Quote:
Caviar and snails – two of France’s most loved delicacies come together with the release of the first-of-its-kind snail caviar by De Jaeger, a snail farm specializing in this exotic delicacy.

Being the first in the world to produce snail caviar shell-less and unpasteurized, the farm - founded by two former snail farmers - spent nearly four years perfecting the production and harvesting process, resulting in tiny, smooth cream-colored pearls that reportedly burst on the tongue with subtle autumn and woody flavors.
[Euell Gibbons] Mmmm, autumn and woody flavors... reminds me of the taste of the bottom of the leaf mulch pile. [/Euell Gibbons]

Bit steep in price, but otherwise I'd be game to try, as I've eaten and liked snails.



SPUCK  Tuesday Jan 13 05:09 AM

Hope it tastes better than the original caviar.. (Think Tom Hanks in BIG.)

Stuff tastes like metal paste.



DanaC  Tuesday Jan 13 05:12 AM

*wrinkles up nose* doesnt appeal...



Trilby  Tuesday Jan 13 05:28 AM

Fail.



sweetwater  Tuesday Jan 13 07:28 AM

This must be the ultimate slow food. Not only is it eggs, but it's the as-yet unhatched eggs of a snail. You can have my share, all of it. Please.



Shawnee123  Tuesday Jan 13 08:32 AM

THey look like bath beads, but probably don't smell very good. I wouldn't take a bath with them. Of course, I wouldn't eat bath beads, either.



spudcon  Tuesday Jan 13 08:52 AM

Snail eggs, eyeballs, still breathing fish flailed and cooked alive, I can't wait until Friday to see another cute fuzzy little critter that's more appealing to eat.

Why wait:

Awwwww...let's cook him up!

I prefer raw.


Gravdigr  Tuesday Jan 13 06:59 PM

I prefer chicken caviar.



Tree Fae  Tuesday Jan 13 09:32 PM

Snails are kinda cute, but I pass on them so would pass on the eggs too and way to stupid of a price



richlevy  Tuesday Jan 13 11:26 PM

Hmmm. Unpasteurized.

Pass.


spudcon  Wednesday Jan 14 12:01 AM

Also, beware of the giant carnivorous snail!

But these aren't wild, they're raised in a private snail spa.


Gravdigr  Thursday Jan 15 12:54 AM

Chicken caviar...Come on, that's funny as hell.

Maybe ya hafta be stoned...



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jan 15 01:08 AM

Yes it was.



Gravdigr  Friday Jan 16 11:04 AM

See, that's all I'm looking for.



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jan 16 11:08 AM

Sometimes just knowing that when future generations unearth a thread, they'll chuckle and think, that poster was a clever sob.
