Clam Fritters

Clam Fritters

The following Clam Fritters recipe is a handwritten one from my mother, Elizabeth Dukes, that I have used for more than 40 years (when I could find clams like ES seaside ones).

Approximately 20 clams - reserve liquid and use only a part of it if too salty.

Add water if needed.

Cut clams with scissors or preferably with hamburger knife on grinder.

Slightly beat 2 eggs and mix with flour (approx. 1 cup), clams, and liquid to form medium batter.

Fry in hot vegetable oil--one or two tablespoons for each fritter.
