This is a recipe from an area Church cookbook. It is typical of how we make our clam fritters. They are delightful and especially enjoyed more if you went clamming and brought home the clams! They are called 'Gimme' Clam Fritters because they are eagerly awaited for by family and friends who gather together for a summer meal! Many gather around the kitchen while we fry these ( about 3-4 minutes per side usually).
