soak in salt water (1 tablespoon coarse salt for every 2 quarts of fresh water) and add several tablespoons of cornmeal This will cause the clams to spit out the sand. Purge them for about an hour before cooking. Remember, don't soak clams in fresh water, that will kill them


Thats what we do

Are these the Lagoon clams that you had your adolescent boy toy picking while you enjoyed the launch?

I think there are some sort of child labor laws against that kind of stuff...
