Enjoy an ocean delight tonight! Clams are easy to prepare and are delicious when steamed and served with melted butter.

Ingredients

4
pounds soft-shell clams in shells
6
cups water
1/3
cup white vinegar
1/2
cup boiling water
Butter or margarine, melted, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Discard any broken-shell or open (dead) clams. Place remaining clams in large container. Cover with 6 cups water and the vinegar. Let stand 30 minutes; drain. Scrub clams in cold water.
  • 2 Place clams in a steamer with boiling water. Cover and steam 5 to 8 minutes or until clams open at least 1 inch, removing clams as they open. Discard any unopened clams.
  • 3 Serve hot clams in shells with butter.
Tips  

If a steamer in not available, place clams in 6-quart Dutch oven. Add 1 inch boiling water; cover tightly.

Live clams, oysters, mussels and scallops should have tightly closed shells.

Don’t get steamed! If a steamer is not available, place oysters in 6-quart Dutch oven. Add 1 inch of boiling water and cover tightly.

To test if open shellfish are alive, tap the shell. Live shellfish will close when tapped.
