Prep Work Details

The night before or the morning of the class put your clams in a bowl with a handful of salt and cold water. Cover and put in the fridge. This will make the clams open and any of the sand that is trapped inside will fall to the bottom of the bowl. Before class grab them out of the bowl so the sand remains in the bottom and rinse with water.
