These were delicious...where's the optional sixth star? The recipe says it serves 12 but I doubled the batch and four of us ate every last fritter. Please note: When it says "batter" it's more like a dough. I thought perhaps I'd misread the ingredients when I doubled the recipe. Then I wondered if the clams were supposed to be with their juice (canned). Regardless, I stirred in as much flour as I could and dumped the rest (next time I might use a bit less).
My husband's a real clam snob (coming from the razor clam capital of "the world"). I used fresh, diced horse clams which are at the very bottom of the clam-eating world. He raved about the fritters. Who knew!? Hence a sixth star!
Clam *fritters*?! You mean clam *cakes*! ;) That's the real New England name for these tastey babies
Simple and delicious!
no flavor at all. used canned clams. batter seemed afull dry. are you supposed to use the juice from the canned clams?
Obviously canned clams are not for this recipe, had absolutely no flavor. Have no choice where I live. Oh well, just have to wait til I go back to Maine. Great fritter batter though!
