URGENT: Freezing Steamed Steamers in Butter or Cream for Later Use ?

opinionatedchef | Sep 14, 201508:23 PM     3

I feel that this is somehow a stupid question, but I'm going to ask it anyway. We leave for a 5 day trip tomorrow and I have a pint of steamer clams, cooked(steamed), leftover from tonight's dinner.
I know from experience that Fried Clams, which are made with the same steamer clams, are terrible when reheated, but could these leftover steamed clams survive, flavor-wise, in a melted butter, or cream bath? (I was thinking I would use them for chowder, though I have always used hard shell clams for chowder .[ I have also had success with frozen chopped clams, made from hard shell clams, for chowder, risotto, fritters...] I HAVE had a delicious chowder made with fresh razor clams, which seem similar to steamers in their 'soft bodies.') Thx for your help.
