the new face of thanksgiving


Clam chowder in bread bowls. Get used to it. Turkeys are out. Edible bivalves are the future. Clams have no cerebral cortex or limbic system to feel pain. They are rich in B-12 and relatively uncontaminated.

Though unverified, it’s quite likely that in the 1620s, Pilgrims and Native Americans consumed clams at their harvest festivals. They were common menu items in those years.

I have had dangerous run-ins with clams in the past, but that’s all behind me now. It’s clear sailing into a clammy new world.
