What's a girl to do with a mess o' clams?

VJA | Mar 30, 2009 01:05 PM

I just got back from the farmers market where my fish guy tossed a pound of baby clams in with my order as a gift. This is totally cool, except I have not a clue what to do with them.

I don't know how to clean them, prep them, cook them, shell them -- nothing. I grew up in Indiana, and if you've ever heard of Hoosier clams, you know they don't come from the sea.

Help! I would love to make something edible. He says they won't open up for at least three days (I don't even know what that means), so I'm planning to use them tomorrow.

Your genius ideas (and snarky comments) welcome.
Thanks!
