Telling the difference between a cockle and a clam

I went for a coastal bimble last week after a storm to see what Poseidon have coughed up onto the shore, always an interesting adventure.

A huge mid part of a nipper from a brown crab, this fella must have weighed 2 pounds easily..

A leg from a spider crab. These were not originally that common around our shores but seem to be more readily found these days.

Lots and lots of razor clam shells

And lastly quite a few clam and cockle shells, and the easy way to tell them apart... the radial lines on a cockle are vertical and those on a clam are horizontal..its as easy as that.

Both taste really good in a clam chowder !!
