How long can I keep purged clams living

Rate this topic

I just purged a 50 count bag of clams for the wife and now she isn't feeling well. Can I drain them and refrigerate them for 24 hours? Can I keep them in the purge solution (teaspoon salt for 2 quarts water) for 24 hours in the refrigerator? Worst case, I'm having a late night steamer snack. :D

Usually dont run into this situation because they get consumed right away. And I may be wrong, but Id drain the water off, and keep them fridged. Once, one of the clams jumped outta the bowl, and fell back in the fridge, many days later I found it behind something and it was fine.

Drain and chill. If any are underwater in the bottom of the bowl the next day don't eat them as they probably suffocated. Or put them in a strainer suspended over a bowl. I also throw a damp hand towel over them.
