Maine Mahogany Clams

Local spring garlic greens flavor Maine clams in this easily prepared meal.  Maine Mahogany Clams are ocean quahogs harvested off the coast of Maine that have a mahogany color. Every time that they are available fresh in the grocery stores anywhere around here abouts, we buy them, and being in Rural Pennsylvania that doesn’t happen too often. They are far less expensive than the more desirable and higher-priced littleneck clams, due to their size and color, so they are a great value.

Here we steamed them in a white wine and butter sauce, with some of our Spring Garlic greens (spring garlic now, and then the garlic scapes come in a few weeks) for a wonderful seafood meal.  Our Alleghany Upland garlic pairs well with the  seafood of Maine’s Down East. Note: the young garlic bulbs were removed from the greens, and saved for pickling.
