Once again, eGullet and its knowledgeable members have led me down the path of enlightenment. It is not the first time, and will hopefully not be the last. Keep in mind I was going by the seat of my pants, here, and have never made snails and had actually only eaten them once previously, so if I did something wrong, please let me know. Also, if I'm not supposed to eat dozens of these periwinkles at a time, please advise me of that.

And a tip I think will help - I started with the toothpick, and was batting about .500 with it and swearing a lot. So I straightened a paper clip, and that worked soooo much better; perfectly, in fact. I don't think I lost another snail after that.

Anyway, periwinkles in a white-wine, butter, garlic, chili thing:
