Early spring gifts us one of the super-lowest tides of the entire year… and in my world that only means one thing… time to go spooting!!!
Spoots or razorclams are a delicious shellfish that lives burrowed in the sand along many of our UK shores, however the typical tidal range doesn’t usually uncover the razor beds. A few precious times a year the tides are super high and low, allowing us rare access to the razorbeds on foot. I like that you can’t get there all the time, it helps with sustainability for the spoot colonies. I usually find cockles & other clams too.
The plan for the day involves arriving at one location to ID & collect sea veggies & tasty coastal plants to enjoy with our clams, then off to the spooting site to learn how to find & collect these beautiful shellfish. We’ll then have an evening cook-up on the beach & enjoy our catch together, as fresh as can be! You will need your own transport ideally but chat to me if that’s a problem.
Low tide is just before sunset which is why this is an afternoon into evening course 🙂
