Clam Dip

Clam DipClam Dip and the Miracle of Clams!

I’m not too sure that there is a large crowd anywhere screaming for Clam Dip.  What I do know is that anyone that ever tried this recipe couldn’t put it down.  I swear to you that my son, of only 16 months of age, flat out ignored the potato chips and full on scooped the Clam dip out with his fingers and shoveled that creamy delight right into his little mouth, one hand full at a time.  The secret to this party dip is literally in what I call, “The Miracle of Clams”!  If you are wondering what this means then I should explain.

The Miracle of Clams isn’t just in their ability to make Pearls, it’s in their flavor, and in their very being and the way they live and function.  They are a very clean and tighty creature.  If you could dare say that they have good Hygiene, then that’s what they have.  And I believe that makes for a great recipe.  Think about it.  What’s the first thing you do before you start cutting your vegetables?  You wash, rinse and clean them off, right?  Of course you do.  No one wants dirt and soot in their food and anyone with common sense keeps a clean house as well.  Well, these little Clams do the same exact thing.  They clean everything.  And with a little help from my Clam Dip recipe, they’ll clean your pallet too!
