  3. Drop the fritters into the hot oil by the heaping tablespoonful. Fry until golden on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate to serve.

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!
