“Photo may be seen here in the Savor gallery: These clams are gutsy and robust. Serve them with a good, crusty country bread to sop up the juices – you don’t want to miss a drop. I have used jarred jalapeno because where I live you couldn't find a fresh one to save your life. This works well with manila clams also but you will need more as they are smaller. Also adjust the time for smaller clams, they are done when the shells are open wide.”
