“Quahogs are another name for hard-shell clams, and I know that at least in our region here in Maine, it refers to larger clams (as opposed to cherrystones). These are fairly easy to make, the worst part is the shucking, but I usually pass that job over to someone else. I eat these anytime I can get them. Update 10/16/2006. I've adjusted the cook times. We like them much better when they were cooked longer.”
