We dig up our own quahogs at a local beach - Ferry Beach, Maine - my son-in-law brings in just-caught lobsters from his boat-we pick up fresh corn at a farmers market -scrub a few potatoes and we're on our way to a good fish fry!
- Drain clams, reserving the juice. Coarsely chop clams (I run them through the grinder).
- Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Stir into chopped clams with combined clam juice and eggs.
- Drop by tablespoonfuls into a little hot fat or salad oil in skillet (I use a deep-fat fryer) and fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
