I like to soak mine in either a beer or wocheshire sauce for at least 3 hours in the fridge in a plastic baggie.  Then I can fix em about any way after that and enjoy them.

They don't have frogs in Bavaria?

None that you would eat. I think I could get my grocery guy to order some from France (lots of 'em there), but they wouldn't be fresh. We'll be in S.C. in Sept., and that's always the first shopping trip, to get frog legs and raw oysters. Damn, I'm hungry now!

Couldn't they be shipped to you live from France?  They just take about 30 secs to clean.

That's a good question and I will try to find out about it. I'll ask my friend if he can get some at the wholesale place he buys from in Munich. I kind of like to save them for my trips to the U.S., so I'll have something to look forward to.

That makes sense too.  I just can't fathom someone who can't get frog legs, so I was trying to help!

Hate to say it but Ernest T told me those fine legs came from China.

'Preciate your comment. Did some research: amphibians are protected in Germany, meaning no frog killin'. The import of frog legs, however, is legal. I can buy dead ones from outside Germany, but can't buy live ones to butcher here. I'd imagine most of the ones we import come from China, and also a lot from France. I will check with my Asia market dude on the weekend. He"s the one who gets my okra, another hard-to-find-here Southern delicacy.

On the upside, spare-ribs are way cheap here, great beer and sausages, good wine is affordable, cheese, bread, etc. are supreme, and with my smoker (thanks sis, for sending it over) and homemade bbq sauce, we can do some great pulled pork.

As a descendant of some great bootleggers and cookers, I see a market.  It really is things like that are hard to explain to people about why there truly is no place like home.  I've spent a good deal of my life in different parts of this space rock and enjoyed some aspects of just about all of them except Saudi Arabia.  I was always glad to be back home where I can snatch a frog out of the pond and let the grease fly.  I'm glad for the experiences and proud to be back in the Ozarks.  I've never tried to store frog legs for shipping, but good luck making your home more comfortable!

Yeah, there are some things that, even if you get close, just ain't the same. I try to make breakfast sausage here and just can't get it down, no matter what the recipe says, for example. If you don't have access to a P.X., no sausage for you.

 But hey, like you (though just for travelling purposes and not professionally), I've been to more than a few places, and have always found enriching things to add to my life no matter where I am, so everything I miss is balanced out by something new (sorry Grandma, the best fried chicken I ever had was at the market in Ranong, Thailand).

About the market idea - I've been lightly pondering a bbq. trailer to do at events. These people DO NOT KNOW what barbecue is. Everyone, with no exceptions, who has tried my bbq. chicken and ribs has freaked out. And that's those done on the charcoal grill, not in the smoker. I live in the middle of town and many people walk by when I grill and stick their heads around the corner to find out what smells so good. The sauce takes 10 minutes to mix and is the one thing that takes me home to Arkansas. Chicken and pork are cheap. The only thing to add is coleslaw, bread, and paper towels. I think it would be pretty lucrative, at least as a paying hobby.

Do they regulate things like that?  i don't know exactly where you are, but capitalism is an entirely different deal outside of our borders.  Don't get me started about inside our borders.

Do mean regulate selling food at events? I live in Landsberg am Lech, in the Free State of Bavaria, about 40 miles SW of Munich (google the live webcam), and, yes, they regulate it. Not as bad as you might imagine - the German beauracracy is pretty straightforward. I'm sure you have to have a business permit and get inspected by the Health Office, but I believe that's about it. Judging from what I buy to eat at some of these shindigs, it can't be too difficult. Last month they were serving free beer at the opening of our town festival and my wife went to get one and noticed they were taking the used mugs and just re-filling them without washing them. My wife could have shut them down with a phone call to the Health Office, but she's a live and let live kinda lady, so she went on about her business - without a beer. That was a complete rarity, though. I could go on and on about some stupid rules here...

Oh, it's fun, and that wasn't typical. Germany is really clean compared to just about anywhere else I've been (haven't seen Singapur yet). You can get all sorts of good food at the stands they set up at festivals, flea markets, etc. And beer, always beer, the liquid bread of Bavaria...
