Ocean State tradition has it that the clams are hard to find in clam cakes, but there’s always a tang from the clam juice in the fritterlike batter. The trick is to keep it light and to deep-fry these treats so they come out dry and not greasy. Flo’s has been doing it for 70 years, so these folks have got it down.

    Mid-Golden instead of dark brown is also a requisite. I’d like to try these.
