clamming (kim)

We went clam digging yesterday, what a great time we had.  Here’s the step by step process to clamming:

  • take one toilet plunger and one bucket down to the beach
  • look for small hole under the surface of the ocean water
  • once found put toilet plunger on small hole and pump 7 times
  • dig around in the churned up murky water with your hand
  • pull up fat juicy clam (s)
  • watch out for the clam’s tendency to pees on you as you escort to bucket
  • put clam in bucket full of clean salty water
  • come home when you have a pot full of clams

Eating Clams

  • boil up salty water
  • dump in clams till they open
  • bring clams, and one small tub of hot salty water, and butter to table
  • pick up one clam, yank him out of shell via a gross black top
  • remove the sandy sheath around black gross top
  • dip in hot salty water until all red pei sand gone
  • dip in hot butter
  • eat gross looking clam meat

mmmmmmm (and i’m not kidding.. they look gross but… mmmmmmmm)

    Gosh, have you gone local! Not only sounds like an acquired taste, but also “don’t knock it until you try it” sort of experience. Think the only thing I can see as being fun is the “dig around in the churned up murky water with your hand” part. Love to dig around.
