About this deal

As we can see from the nutritional values section, cockles supply a broad range of essential nutrients. Drain, reserving the liquid for another time you can freeze it and use it to make fish soup or as a sauce base. So, to bring a taste of the sea to your table why not try out some cockle recipes in this collection that includes Shaun Rankin's recipe for cockles cooked in white wine with shallots, pancetta and basil or follow Chris Horridge's recipe and use to accompany monkfish wrapped in Parma ham. With a small, sharp knife slice away the hard calciferous disc at the meaty end of the whelk and trim away the dark innards from the 'tail' end that has been curled up in the far end of the shell and can be a bit gritty. Ingredients: Cockles (Cerastoderma edule) (Mollusc); water; spirit vinegar; sugar; salt; flavourings; acidity regulator (citric acid).

I've also learned from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (yes, that IS his real name) that mackerel is a fish that is sustainable so I may eat some in future instead of haddock or salmon. Laverbread, not actually bread at all but seaweed, is rolled in oatmeal, fried into crisp patties and served with eggs, bacon and fresh cockles for a traditional Welsh breakfast. The common cockle, (Cerastoderma edule), is widely distributed around the coastlines of Northern Europe, with a range extending west to Ireland, the Barents Sea in the north, Norway in the east, and as far south as Senegal.They are usually only eaten cooked but controls on harvesting and marketing fall within the same regulatory regime as mussels. Their small, heart-shaped shells contain a small, delicate morsel of flesh that can be eaten raw, steamed or boiled.

We are happy to supply the small wholesaler through to the larger National Multiple and having ourselves been in business for so many years have the experience of doing so. Parsons as a company have been producing Bottled Pickled Cockles and Mussels for over 50 years with a very high reputation for these particular products.Moving on, we've probably seen the last of the whelks in the farmers' market for this year so, apart from the only bag of prepped whelk meats I now have left in the freezer, it looks like it'll be cockles that will be getting this treatment for the rest of the year. As is the case in many bivalves, cockles display gonochorism (the sex of an individual varies according to conditions), [3] and some species reach maturity rapidly. These are just a few examples, but there are numerous other ways to use cockles, from pasta dishes to steamed and even deep-fried dishes.

Drop the cockles, individually if possible, into the hot oil – they will have a tendency to clump – and fry in batches for 3-4 minutes or until really crisp. Fresh cockles tend to only be available in the surrounding coastal areas where they live, whereas pickled cockles are packed in jars and more widely available. Based on data from the NCCDB nutrition database (accessed through Cronometer) and the FDA’s published daily values, here are the nutrition facts for cockles (raw) per 3. you know, by sticking a fork into the jar or something when I told him not to do that as I was up to my eyes in baking at the time and said that I "had plans" for the cockles.

Put it this way, they're aren't as many boxes going for recycling due to the fact processed food is off the menu.
