Clam Fritters

  • 2 egg yolks well beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 7/8 cup flour
  • salt, pepper, cayenne
  • 2 egg whites stiffly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Combine ingredients in order given; let stand ten minutes (be patient, you rascal). Remove clams from shell, cut off heads, cover with batter, and fry until rich golden brown in hot fat. Drain on brown paper. As claims contain so much water, only a few should be put into the fat at once.
Oysters in batter may be prepared in the same manner as clam fritters.
