Asians use the inner purple lining of the clams to make belts sashes or even spiritual purposes. Clams are two-shelled mollusks. They have tow types 1HARD SHELLED and 2SOFT SHELLED. Hard shelled clams are harvested in Florida. These brown nearly- oval shaped mollusks come in three sizes. The smallest are the tenderest and sweetest. The rings or ridges on the outside of the shell indicate the clams growth and age which can be more than30 years. They can reach sizes of 6 inches but are usually found at half that size. Clams are sold live in the shell, fresh and canned, when buying make sure the shells are tightly closed. This indicates they are fresh. If a shell is slightly open, tap it lightly. If it doesn't snap shut, the clam is dead and it is not eatable.
