Way too many clams - what to do?

bearzie | Mar 12, 2005 01:45 PM

I bought a huge can (51oz) of Snow's diced clams. Now I am trying to figure out what to do with it.

I normally make N.E. clam chowder with fresh clams so I'm not sure how to convert this. I'm confused about the juice they come in whether I should use it or not and if it would be too salty.

Because clam chowder won't freeze well (because of the potatoes), I'm wondering what else I can do with them once I open the can. I like clam sauce but again, not sure about the juice. I figured I could make a batch of clam sauce and freeze it in batches to use with linguine.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
