Cooking & Storage

Like mussels, cockles should be live at the point of purchase. They should smell fresh, and the shells should be closed. If any of the cockle shells are open, then give them a good tap against a hard surface. This should encourage it to close - if it remains open, then discard the cockle.

Before cooking, firstly give them a rinse to wash away any sand or dirt. To steam them, pick a large pan with a lid. Bring a cup of water to the boil and add a splash of lemon juice or white wine vinegar. Place the cockles in the pan, and cover. It will only take a couple of minutes for them to cook, and then shells to spring open. The orange cockle inside can then easily be picked out and eaten.

For the freshest and best flavour, store Cockles in the fridge and consume within 1-2 days from delivery. Cockles must be cooked prior to consumption. Not suitable for home freezing.
