Quahog pearl

My husband had gone "quahogging" one Saturday and brought home a couple of bushels to share with friends. After we had steamed them we sat around the fire with butter and clams. I felt something hard hit my throat and it scared me. I stood up gave a loud cough and the pearl flew right into my husbands glass of beer. We still laugh about it.

Hello Lynn,

That is very funny. I suppose you could have lost the pearl if it didn't land in the glass. I wonder what the chances are of it landing where it did. Lucky you, first to find the pearl and then to not loose it. Glad you didn't choke or swallow it.

Thanks for sharing your story and great photo.
