Rhode Island Stuffies

image_pdfimage_print

 

This week’s state – Rhode Island. This state is known for Irish brown bread, Del’s lemonade, clam cakes, and this uniquely Rhode Island treat, Stuffies. These delicious treats are served all over the state – from roadside trucks to sit down restaurants. They are the star of the table.

So, what is a stuffie you ask? It’s a stuffed clam!

The east coast is home to the quahog clam. The early natives used this big mollusk as wampum. Their tender meat is sweet and perfect for chowders and stuffed clams. However, I had a little problem. I’m on the west coast.

Cherrystone clams are only slightly smaller and work quite well. I used this variety since I was able to find it at my local supermarket. And stuffies don’t really have parmesan on them. That’s an addition I threw in. You can leave it off if you prefer.

And now – just what is in a stuffie? Well keep reading and you’ll see what’s in them and just how easy they are to make. Are you ready? Continue reading

I was craving my grandma’s pork roast and sauerkraut, but it was a weeknight and there was simply not time to pop that roast in the oven for a couple of hours – and I don’t make sauerkraut. But then I got an idea!

Why not fry up a couple of pork chops and dress up a can of kraut? And so I did!

New York Manhattan Clam Chowder

image_pdfimage_print

So many delicious foods associated with New York! The Romanian Jews brought Pastrami on rye; an Italian immigrant introduced coal oven pizza, and Bagels were shared by the Polish Jews. Bagels and Lox, another New York prize, was a combination of Swedish cured salmon and Native American smoking techniques with some all American cream cheese added. And there are Buffalo wings, white hots and thousand island dressing – all boasting roots in the big apple.

And then there’s the Manhattan clam chowder. This rich soup varies from the New England version in that it is tomato based and not cream based. And it is hearty and delectable, a wonderful bowl of soup!
