"Whole belly tiny Manilla Clams not for frying!" Sheryl Y. Sutler on 07/16/2021 03:00 Review: Had I known the Manilla clams you'd be sending f to at-home prepare fried WHOLE BELL CLAMS were same--or not much larger than--cockles, I would have walked 6 blocks to 1 of 2 fishmongers on Arthur Avenue (old Little Italy) here in the Bronx and bought cockles--and paid a whole lot less. I'd bought special dutch oven pot, thermometer, spiral strainers, new fry basket and draining rack and ALL 5 Star clam shack recipe ingredients. Unable to get them at restaurants (i.e. at Umbertos or Oyster Bar at Grand Central Station) due to COVID since February 2020. Almost a two-year craving.pretty much dashed when the teeny manilla Clams arrived. Learned a lesson: Clams need to bought here on the EAST coast--and actually right here in neighborhood! Thank you for posting your Product Review. Our Customer Service Team would like to reach out to you shortly to discuss your order. The Vital Choice Team

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.
