    RHOS's Note:

    My family are displaced East Coast Northerners, living in the land locked South. The only huge complaint being no beach and no fresh clams. I was raised eating this version of steamed clams. Now, even my 4 year old and 2 year old love these clams. They beg for them when we see them at the supermarket (which is rare). I get strange looks from the guy behind the counter when I stand there and check the clams for liveness (tapping, thumping, etc). I hope you enjoy them as much as we have.
