do you guys get fresh clams or canned? I always assumed that the linguini with clam sauce i had growing up were fresh (coz I was on the ocean), but my wife's parents (NJ Italian) made the dish last week and they had no qualms about using canned clams

an important question

at home, i get it. how often do you have shelled clams nearby.

the restaurant i go to now for it only uses fresh littlenecks (a lot of them) and homemade pasta

I can sometimes be indifferent to a mix of the chopped clams from the can, with a few real clams on top, if it comes out right

but at this point I can't do just the chopped clams from the can at a restaurant. unfortunately it comes out looking more like a soup in most of those cases. and the prices are normally high and it's kind of like 'why?'

if I am doing it at home, cause I am jonesing for it, and can control the amount of wine (a lot) and amount of excess liquid (very little), then yes canned can pass - but i will usually just wait to have it at a resto with shelled clams

how do you clean your live ones before you cook them?

i've seen a trick where if you soak them in water with cornmeal for a while it makes them spit out all their sand and stuff

then when you eat them there will be no grit

great if doing steamers

Ooh, put some Lister's Carbolic Unguent on a wad of cotton. Put the cotton in the ear. That'll get the grit out.

also in the category of stupid resolutions, i've never seen one james bond film, and so i'm making it a goal of watching every one this year. i start with dr. no tomorrow night.

I got very close to buying a DVD box set of every Bond film (at the time) in like my early 20’s. It didn’t include the one with that rando actor who played Bond inlynonce, so I didn’t get it because it was incomplete.
