I did this video a while back and for some reason arrived in my email box.
Since it is still summer, I hope you will be able to find this delicacy I love. I find this in the East Coast mostly in New York.
If you find fresh ones, they are easy to prepare.
In a big pot to hold your 1lb or 2 lbs of steamers, add about 2-3 cups of water depending on the amount of steamers you want to cook. If you have a colander in your pot (steamers pot), put your steamers in that. Cover and boil for about 5-10 minutes until the clams open.
Remove the steamers to a bowl. Reserve the broth in a separate bowl. Pour the broth in separate 1 cup bowls.
Melt half a stick of butter for a pound of steamers and pour the oily part in a small container or dipping bowls. (In other words only take the clarified butter).
To serve: watch the video how to eat it. Dip the peeled steamer first in the broth to clean of some sand it may have, and then dip it in butter.
I love this in the summer with freshly boiled bi-color corn. Those are usually sweet!
Have a great appetizer or main meal. Don’t forget your salad!
