After i returned home i dropped the clams off at Savage Ed's for a summer dinner. I went home showered and had time to take a nap. When i returned in the afternoon, i got to work right away. People were hungry and stuffed clams take a while to make because of the multiple steps. I started by separating the clams, little ones and big ones. The little necks i saved to be opened on the grill. The bigger clams were for stuffing. After separating the clams, i scrubbed them with a sponge. The Big clams were put into a pot with a little olive oil and fresh garden herbs. As the clams opened they added water to the oil, and the best clam stock ever was born. While i prepared the big clams Savage Ed threw the little necks on the grill with two fresh hot garden peppers. The crowd was very pleased with a small slice of hot pepper and a fresh clam.
