How do you steam little neck clams?

Chef's answer
In a stockpot, add the wine and bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Gently add the clams to the boiling wine, then cover and steam until fully opened, about 5 minutes. While the clams are steaming, melt the butter or ghee in a microwave and add the minced garlic. Distribute into small bowls.
