    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    There is nothing fancy about steamed clams the Maine way. Just soak the clams in salted water with some cornmeal that they cipher through them to get rid of some of the grit. Then scrub and steam. Last of all---dunk in butter. Mussels may be used in place of the clams.
