Because the clam has been established in our minds as a chowder ingredient, many people do not realize the wide variety of other dishes which can be prepared with this popular shellfish. Like oysters, they are also enjoyed raw.

Clams may be purchased fresh, canned, stock or frozen (already prepared by various methods) in most supermarkets. As is true with most shellfish, clams require a short cooking time. In fact, most people consider a “well-cooked” clam a “clam-ity.”
