What is a “clambake.”



Put on your clam diggers, grab your spade and bucket, and head to the grass flats. Dig in muck to locate clam. Put clam in bucket. Repeat until full. Make a fire, put a rack on it, put the clams on the rack. Burn until they open, crack em, add hotsauce, then hand it to your uncle. Them s#$%s is gross, you don't want it.

Alternatively, roll a 6g blunt, find a '98 Hyundai Accent and four friends, enter the car, roll up the windows, light the blunt, and hand it to me. Them s#$%s is gross, you don't want it.

Lol!,showing my age....

It's an East Coast beach party from early-mid 1900s, (cooking them like that probably goes back centuries) where people go dig clams out of the surf, then bury them with hot coals in the sand until they're baked, then feast. Usually involved a lot of alcohol, because baked/steamed clams are kind of strong-tasting and slimy IMO. Think rubbery, smaller oysters, if you've had those.

Anyway, it became a generic term for any gathering of like-minded people.

Face, you literally mad me LOL! This perfectly describes the last time I went clamming (maybe 15 years or so ago). It's all fun and games until you actually eat the clams!

Long Island clams mature in mid to late August, so clambakes signify the end of summer. They were bittersweet as teenagers. We'd look forward to them but they also meant we'd be going our separate ways and be back in school soon.

You are messing with the wrong kind of clams. Steamers are good, but razors....ahhh, the kind. Big fat razor, milking, would get you to put down that blunt and try to eat your weight in double crackered, pan fried clams.

What are you trying to chew out that way, some big old horse clams, or pink necks? Not geoducks?

I think we only have quahogs here in FL.

We had some Italian neighbors who had the whole baked clams thing down to a t. Most of my family were into steamers but baked is the only way I go. I've never found clams seasoned the way they did. Theirs were more garlicky than the usual fare.

Speaking of seafood, I had lobster ravioli the other day.

Not impressed. Tasted just like regular ravioli.
