How long can you keep oysters in the fridge?
Keeping this in consideration, how do you store oysters in the fridge?
When you bring raw oysters home, store them in their shell, large shell-side down, in the refrigerator (no lower than 33 F) for up to five days (although the flavor is best when they are consumed within 24 hours of purchase). They should be packed in either a mesh bag or in an open container covered with a damp cloth.
Furthermore, how do you know when oysters go bad?
Bad oysters are dry and withered with a cloudy appearance. Contaminated oysters tend to be grey, brown, black or pink in color. Smell the oyster meat. Healthy oysters smell fresh and mild.
Shucked or in the shell, oysters can last up to two days in the refrigerator. How do I store cooked oysters? To store cooked oysters, seal the oysters in an air-tight container within 2 hours of cooking. Then, place them in either a refrigerator or freezer.
