Storage

Purchase clams just before cooking them so there should be little storage to worry about. If you do purchase them several hours in advance, they should be stored uncovered in the refrigerator to keep them cool and moist. Do not keep them in water or they will die. They should not be wrapped in anything airtight since they need oxygen to keep them alive. Shucked clams in their liquor can be refrigerated for several days or frozen in an airtight container. Defrost frozen clams in the refrigerator, not at room temperature.

Preparation and Cooking Tips

Just before cooking, clams must be thoroughly cleaned and rinsed several times. Scrub them with a stiff brush under cool running water and trim off beards if they have them. If any are open, tap the shell. If they don’t close tightly, discard them. If any don’t open when cooked, discard them. These little creatures are inexpensive and plenty. Clams can be cooked in various methods such as smoked, boiled, steamed, roasted, barbecued or fried in butter.
