Thanks!

And I just mentioned it to Ollie - he made a face - (sort of like this > ) but he has agreed to try it! I will report back with both of our reactions! I think Tuesday will be the day.

Obviously cherry stones is not a common term amongst Brits when referring to clams

How would she know? When just cherry stones, without mentioning they were clams, was stated, I can see where Katy was confused. It makes sense that she thought cherry stones from actual cherries were the ingredient. We speak different languages, even though they're both English!

Thanks Pac.

Yes, I am now very well-informed about clams.

We do!

I know my comment caused huge amusement (and I don't mind at all). It was a genuine misunderstanding.

Part of being on sites like this for me is all about learning new things.

Clams are simply not a part of the general British diet. (Though I am sure you can find them here.)

Really, where do you come up with this stuff? Can't you give someone advice without sniping all the time? What is it, my turn today?
My apologies. I should have written that in the third person. Which is as it was intended I did not mean for it to come across as a personal attack.
