This is it. The LAST decent clamming tide until autumn.
So if you want to find some clams, you’ll need to take a day off. Yeah, I know it’s tough, but the good tides are all mid-week. So I am organizing a mid-week clamming trip on TUESDAY, June 5.
Dead low tide is at 6:53 a.m., which means we’d need to be at the clamming ground at 6 a.m. sharp.
Here’s the plan: We gather at the clamming grounds bright and early. We should have about 2 hours to dig. After that, we swing over to a nearby coffee shop for The Nectar of Life and some breakfast. Then I show you how to clean your clams and offer some of the best ways to cook them.
This trip is limited to 10 people, and you will need to buy a California fishing license to clam. Cost: $45, includes clamming, food and a copy of Hunt, Gather, Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast. I’ll also have some snacks for us all, too (charcuterie, cheese, bread and homemade pickles).
