Favorite clamming beach Tide -3
A bucket of manilas.
The daily catch limit is 40 clams per person. Minimum size 1 1/2 inches across. We purge them overnight in saltwater, saute onions, garlic, celery and herbs in a big pot, add a cup of dry white wine, add clams and steam just until they open. Remove clams to large bowl, reduce juices in pan to about half, add a little butter or a few drops of heavy cream. Pour bubbling sauce over clams... I love to soak up the sauce with a crusty baguette when the clams have been devoured!
