Yes they’re snails, and yes they were delicious. One of my favorite childhood memories of Sicily is going to a field with my family to harvest the babaluci (Sicilian for land snails). They were everywhere!! We plucked them from grasses, logs, fences…everywhere! After soaking them in a pot of water for a bit, they’re ready to cook. This particular dish is actually quite spectacular. The babaluci are served in a light tomato garlic broth, which makes for awesome bread dipping.
