Battered cockles Mike? Yes but don't forget the laverbread, a special treat with cockles and sausage (or bacon).

Hi Roger

We had them at the Rake & Riddle pub just outside Gowerton, and they came with a dip & some salad. They were just the job with a local pint.

I was brought up in Barrow-in-Furness and spent many a happy hour as a child on Morecambe Bay sands cockling with my Dad. We used to eat them in all sorts of ways but we never had them battered and deep fried.

I will have to try the lava bread & bacon idea.

In Barrow there is one surviving butcher (Masons of Rawlingson Street) still making the traditional Cumberland sausage to the handed down Co-op Society recipe. It's a different flavour and texture to the Cumberland sausage you get in the Lakes. Every time I go to visit my family in Barrow I bring back 6 foot of it and put it in the freezer. Now you have got me thinking about some cockles with some grilled Cumberland sausage. Sounds yummy
