Baked ‘Quahogs’ Clams

BakedClams

From the succulent Maine Lobster to the Stripers caught off Long Island Sound, the northeast is full of a bounty from the Sea. We took a dozen Cherrystone Clams, commonly known as Quahogs, added some culinary goodness, and served them right up a start for dinner guests. No a single complaint and plenty of ringing endorsements!

From our kitchen to yours, Bennett
