Clambake Parties: A New England Tradition
Clambakes are an East Coast seashore tradition handed down by Native Americans. They feasted on fresh dug clams and other shellfish and taught the first settlers the custom of the pit, hot stones, driftwood and seaweed. A traditional clambake involves digging a deep pit in the beach sand and lining it with rocks. Next the pit is topped with a driftwood fire. When the coals burn down, the embers are raked away. The white, hot rocks are then layered with wet seaweed. The lobster is placed on the seaweed and covered with a tarp. The water from the seaweed steams the lobster.
Today, no clambake is complete without fresh caught Maine lobster, steamer clams, potatoes, and corn on the cob all cooked the old-fashioned way, steamed in seaweed and ocean water. Preparing a clambake is a daylong affair. Let the experts at Ipswich Clambake take care of all the details.
