3 cups red wine

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/4 cup chopped carrots

1/4 cup chopped celery

1 bay leaf

1 teaspoon black peppercorns

2 sticks of butter, at room temperature

1/4 cup chopped garlic

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

Salt

Freshly ground black pepper

4 escargot molds

Crusty bread

Directions

  1. Preheat to 400 degrees F.
  2. Rinse and drain the escargots.
  3. In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine the red wine, mirepoix, bay leaf and peppercorns. Bring the liquid to a simmer. Poach the escargots in batches for 15 seconds. Drain, set aside and reserve 2 tablespoons of the liquid.
