What it is:
Littlenecks are our smaller and more tender hard shell fresh clams. They're commonly served raw on the half shell as an appetizer. But also, we often add a few handfuls of fresh clams to a steaming pan of pasta at the last minute, for a quick bit of extra pizzazz. Don't let clams intimidate. They are easy to prepare and wildly fun to serve. Look for our Ditty Bag in your shipping box. It contains easy information about all our fresh clams.
A two-pound satchel contains about 22 littlenecks.
Care and maintenance of Littleneck Clams.
Littleneck clams should be stored in your refrigerator, and kept in a well-ventilated container. Don’t store directly on ice, the melted fresh water will reduce their life expectancy significantly. If a clam is gaping, and does not stay closed when squeezed shut, it should be immediately removed and discarded. If you follow these guidelines, you should expect your hard-shell clams to stay in great condition for two weeks or longer.
All hard shell clams are of the same species. They are all "quahog clams", a name derived from the Narragansett Indian word “poquauhock.” The difference between one hard shell clam and another is their thickness ( their age ), not how big and round they are. Their delectably depends on the nature of the seawater in which they live. Our hard shell fresh clams are not farmed. They are "wild-caught" in the icy New England waters. “caught right, picked right, packed right, shipped right”
