My whelk shells from last years beach trip are finally ready. What have they been doing for a year? Well, when I found them on the beach there were still bits of "critter" inside and the only way I could find of getting the bits out of there consisted of A. burying, B. Freezing, C. Boiling, or D. Microwaving.

Seeing as how I didn't want my kitchen or freezer to smell like dead sea critter I went with option A. The shells have been buried in my backyard for year... I am not going to go into detail as to why this works but I imagine some bugs had a tasty meal this winter.

Anyhoo... the shells are all cleaned and are now displayed on my dining room table.
