How to Choose Fresh Clam
How to Choose Fresh Clam

Shucked clams should be plump, smell fresh, and feel heavy for their size. Avoid those with the odour of ammonia. The clam juice should be clear with no shell fragments. Geoducks, if you can find them in the market, should have short, fat, unwrinkled necks. Wrinkling indicates they have been out of the water too long and are beginning to dehydrate. The flesh of clams can range from creamy white to grey to dark orange. Properly-handled fresh live clams will last 2 days in the refrigerator under optimum conditions.
