Why not try?

1
Wash the cockles thoroughly in plenty of running water. Really rumble them around to wash out all of the sand from the grooves of the shells. If any of the cockles are open, discard them
2
Preheat a large saucepan until it is hot. Add the cockles and 250ml of water to the pan and immediately cover with a lid. Cook over a high heat for 30 seconds –1 minute, or until all of the shells have opened
3
Pour the contents of the pan into a colander, discarding the cooking liquor. Pick through the open cockle shells and place all of the cockle meat in a bowl
4
Wash the picked cockle meat in iced water to ensure they are completely grit-free, then place in a container and cover with the malt vinegar
5
Leave to pickle for a minimum of 30 minutes before serving
