Wouldn't it be lovely to have a traditional New England clam bake? Unfortunately, we don't have any New England beaches, seaweed, canvas tarps, or cannonballs, so we'll have to make it a New England Clam Boil. Here's what you need:

4 fresh ears of corn, shucked
1 pound smoked sausage, cut into 4 pieces
12 small new potatoes, cut in half
8 small onions, peeled, and cut in half
4 (1 3/4-pound) lobsters
24 little neck clams, scrubbed
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 lemons, cut into wedges

Arrange corn, sausage, potatoes, and onions in a steamer basket over boiling water. Top with lobsters and clams. Cover and steam 20 minutes. Serve with butter and lemon.

Seersucker required.
