How to Cook Clams

How to cook clams...have you ever stumbled upon an old book you never realized you had? It's like finding a treasure in your own home.

Recently when I was rearranging our family books I found a 1914 cookbook and general helps book. It could fill up many hours just reading these old fashioned hints and directions for numerous things.

I thought you, my website visitors, would enjoy these recipes on how to cook clams.

Pearls can be found in any type of mollusk...although not every shellfish grows valuable pearls...it's still nice to know.

Clams in Vienna Rolls

Take a large Vienna roll, cut out a piece of the crust the size of a half dollar, and remove the soft bread from the inside. Open as many little-neck clams as will fill the roll, replace the small piece of crust, and place in the oven for ten minutes.

Take the juice from the clams, make a thickening of flour and the juice, mix with it paprika, black pepper, Worcestershire Sauce, a dash tabasco sauce, and beat.

Remove the baked roll from the oven and pour sauce over it.
