      Distinctive Qualities: There is only one true whole belly clam, and that is the Ipswich Clam (Mya arenaria). To the clam connoisseur, there is no other clam than these soft-shell, saltwater beauties. Please don't call them "clam strips," as that would be an insult to their creamy, slightly salty, yet sweet and juicy "bellies."

      Behind the Product: Ipswich Clams are also known as "belly," "soft-shell," "steamers," or "longneck Clams." Accept no imposters! Our Ipswich Clams are harvested only from the famous New England Coast that is known world-wide for its fine seafood. They are dug for by hand during low tide. If you have ever craved true whole belly fried clams or steamers from New England, you know that they are hard to come by—this is due to the fact that their soft shells are delicate and can easily break in transit. Our careful shipping methods ensure their safe arrival from our doors to yours. 

      Serving Suggestions: Because of its density, the Ipswich clam is the very best clam for frying because its center remains juicy and sweet. You can't go wrong with this delicacy—also favored simply steamed and dipped in drawn butter.
