Hard cider and apples add a fall finish to this hearty seafood dinner.
In large pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add garlic and sliced fennel; cook until softened and browned, 5 minutes. Add cider, beans, and clams. Cover; steam until clams open, 7 minutes. (Discard any clams that don’t open.) Stir in fennel fronds and apple; season.
