Mussel Tips!
* When purchasing, make sure they’re alive by tapping their shells, which will snap closed. Any mussels that don’t close are probably Musselsdead and shouldn’t be eaten.
* Live mussels will keep in the refrigerator for two to three days if placed on a tray and covered with a damp towel. Spread them out; never pile the mussels on top of one another.
* Clean them with a brush under cold running water, and discard any than have a non-clear liquid coming out of them. If they have a visable”beard”, brush it off just before cooking, as removing it will kill the mussel.
* To cook them all you have to do is boil them in a pot. Mussels are ready when their shells open, and any mussels that aren’t open should be discarded. Serve over pasta or with French Fries, and enjoy!
