Clams

The clam has multiple personalities. It’s summer shoreline picnic food when battered and crisp-fried or cooked over charcoals and basted with hot sauce. Raw on the half shell it is an appetizer before a pizza or Italian meal. As part of that Italian meal, it might appear with linguine aglio olio or in zuppe di mare with other seafood. It is baked into clam cakes and clam fritters, it is the basic ingredient for a hundred kinds of chowder, and it adorns New Haven’s signature white clam pizza.

I’m famous for enjoying OFTEN, a great lunch of New England-style CLAM CHOWDER {with EXTRA CLAMS!}. & Unsweetened green herbal tea; NO ICE-just chilled water from the refrigerator. { my Pulmonary SPECIALIST educated me years ago saying, ” NEVER use ICE in ANY DRINK! Ice can cause a HEART ATTACK in Seniors-esp. those who live with COPD! The ice settles AROUND the heart & can freeze it to an ATTACT/possibly ‘to death’- though, not ALWAYS, the chance is ‘a high-risk-option’.
