Someone in the June 2 newsletter mentioned recipes from the past and I thought about this one which I find interesting. Archaeological evidence from the shell heaps that once littered the Delaware coastline provided the information for:
A Pre-Colonial Indian Clambake Collect oysters & clams Dig hole large enough to hold the catch Build a bonfire Place stones & small boulders in fire Get some sticks & pull hot rocks from fire & poke them into the pit. Put oysters & clams on top of hot stones. Optional: Pour water over clams to create steam. Fill hole with sand, containing heat from rocks. Let oysters and clams simmer in their juices. Dig up. Enjoy!
