We used to shoot frogs with a .45. It almost always separated the legs from the body reducing prep time :th:

You should have seen me trying to get the mother****er off my frog. Every time I put it on the ground the ****er would hop. I was chasing him around the ground. Was probably pretty comical to watch from afar. :laugh: 

I’ve had this problem myself

I killed so many frogs when I was working in France.  

Buckets of chilled live frogs. We would grab them by the back legs, whack their heads on the table, whack off their legs with a cleaver.  Chuck the rest of the frog in a bucket for the pigman.  Next kid skinned em. 

Brutal. 

 

 

But yeah.  They're damm good.  Body and front legs are too. Not just the rear.  

How’d ya do the snails?

I missed this.  This is what we did.  Most of them did not get the head whack though.  

 

We washed them off with a manual pump going to a well.

Didn't do any snails.  Plucked ALOT birds, sorted lettuce leaves by size, scrubbed way too many mussels and shaved truffles. Bucket after bucket of truffles.   I smelled truffles everytime I showered for weeks afterwards. 

 

 

Eta. Oh and red gurnards (aka sea robins)  i scaled so many of those little things. They cooked them just scaled. Guts & all.

K so I'm sitting here thinking about snails. My memory is spotty but I do recall collecting snails while I was picking grapes and giving them to the vineyard owner's mom.  

From what I gathered she would keep them and feed them cabbage to clean out any toxins. I don't know for how long. Then I think she poached them till fully cooked, remove from shell, clean off the viscera & cut off the hard part (i think it's called the foot),  she didn't put them back in the shell. She sauteed some garlic & parsley in butter and tossed em in it. 

They fed me really well. And apparently a teenage American eats alot more than they realized.    I earned every meal thou. Some back breaking work.
