Tried them for the first time about a fortnight ago after they were purged stuck them in the freezer then straight into boiling water for a few mins. then removed them from their shell removed the waste sack and popped them back in their shells with some garlic butter.

Exactly the same as the ones you buy, got about another 20 to fatten up.

If anyone cares to visit me in Lanarkshire, I can guarantee them a bag full of these blighters. Ours are now the size of walnuts in their shells    
I'm a good vegetarian otherwise I'd be trying to eat the damned things too.

Apparently they're easily purged, and then cooked in garlic and butter they taste delicious…..if you like that kind of food.

Well I would not because I can not as they are not Kasher...  but...

...many years ago a late auntie of mine was take to Paris by a  purely platonic friend for a few days break.

He took her to a luxurious restaurant the first evening and oh did she enjoy what she ate.

Until she was told it was frogs' legs at which point she threw up all over the place and her platonic friend somehow got her back to the UK.

Needless to say that friendship, platonic or not, ended there and then.

But sometimes, just sometimes, I would like to taste the things I am not permitted to eat - I mean does bacon actually taste like the smell of my then neighbour frying it?

We had another 12 a day or two ago I have revised the cooking method
1st blanche for 3 mins, then remove from their shell.
2nd return to the boiling water and simmer for around a hour.

If you have to remove them from their shells then why bother?
Slugs are snails without shells - why not eat them instead?
