Doing the twist brings the cockles up to the surface :)

    1. I did cook some up, I loved them! No one else really wanted any, as I guess they only saw them as bait!

  9. Beautiful pictures!! I love taking the kids hunting for cockles (cept, we call them pippies. Are they the same thing, or different?) Anyway, what I really want to know is, how did you eat them? Share the recipe!

    1. I think they are the same thing. Hubby wasn't really keen to eat them as he uses them for bait! I cooked them with an asian sauce. Will share the recipe when I make them again.
