The Sicilian word for the common ground snail is babbaluci, which comes from the Arabic. In the hills the edible creatures begin to crawl about during the Spring, but they are not usually harvested for a few more months. In fact, snails are really a Summer food in this part of the Mediterranean.

Read about them in Roberta Gangi's article in this month's magazine.
