I bought clams yesterday they were all closed.
I put them in room temperature water overnight (with 3% salt). Not in fridge.
Now 50% are open. 50% have their tongues hanging out.
The main question I have is once they are dead - what is the length of time in which they are ok to eat.
From what I read the ones with tongues hanging out are ok to eat. How about the ones that are open? Are they ok to eat? They have only been open for around 10 hours or so.
