Did You Know...
Knock-knock, who's there? You can tell if a slightly opened hard-shell clam is alive by lightly tapping on the shell; if it doesn't close up, it's time to pitch it.
Purchasing
You can buy clams in many forms--live in the shell, shucked (fresh or frozen) and canned. Hard-shell clams should be tightly closed.
