"Wonderful live Manila Clams" Sharon N on 01/20/2017 12:58 Review: These clams arrived fresh and well-packed. They were so many (and no sand), although opening all of them by hand was surely a labor of love on my part. I made my famous clam chowder, sharing w/ two neighbors. They adored the freshness of the clams. No replacement for "fresh" clams! Next time I order these, I'll be making clams w/ wine/garlic sauce.

"purchaser" Maggie Iacangelo on 05/28/2014 11:34 Review: Your clams were so fantastic, I had to place a second order

"Lots of Clams" Ellen Pollak on 05/28/2014 03:33 Review: Tiny but delicious

Storage and handling

Properly cared for, live shellfish can be held up to 5 days.

However, as with any fresh food, the sooner you enjoy our clams, the better.

Note: Consuming raw shellfish presents a risk to persons with compromised immunity.

  • The clams are alive, and you need to keep them alive until they are cooked or served.
  • As soon as possible, place on (not under) ice and store in the refrigerator at 35-40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • We recommend that you place the net bag of clams in a colander or other self-draining container, and place that self-draining container inside a larger, closed container to catch any liquid.
  • Cover the clams with a damp cloth or towel to keep them from drying out. Again, do not cover or bury the clams in ice.
  • If prolonged storage is necessary, replenish the ice, remove any water from melted ice, and re-moisten the towel frequently.
  • If you put the clams in a plastic bag, make sure that the top is open or that there are holes in the bag to allow the shellfish to breath.
Testing for freshness

  • Using your nose is the best way to check for freshness, If clams smell fresh, like the sea, they are likely still in very good condition. Discard any off-smelling clams.
  • Sometimes the shells of clams will gape open just a bit in order to get more air. If you see this and are wondering if they are still alive, simply squeeze them shut; discard any clams that spring right back open again.
