One of the reason I love summer
is to enjoy my
Simple and Fast Clam Bake
Is cook on the stove top
all in one stock pot,
before you know it
you enjoying a delicious
dish of Clam Bake.

A Little History found in Google about how Clam Bake came about:
What is the origin of the Clambake?
A traditional Clambake begins by digging a pit in the sand
of the beach where the clams are gathered.
The pit is a product of centuries past.
Native Americans did not have massive cooking pots, so they used the earth as 
their cooking vessel. The pit was filled with seaweed and some sand
line with hot rocks or stones they had been heated until the white hot over wood fired,
Next live Clams, Mussels and Lobster are added, and the pit was covered with more
seaweed and some sand finally a wet tarp of canvas or plastic was laid over
all until the seafood was cooked.

Here is what you going to need:

TOOLS
Stock Pot
Steamer Basket

INGREDIENTS
1 pound of White Small New Potatoes
 1 pound of Little Clams
1 pound of Smoke Andouille Sausage cut into 1/2 inch slices.
