Product Description

Available as a 5 pound bag. Approx. 20 mussels per pound. Ships Live.

The blue mussel is a New England staple. We source ours from Bangs Island Mussels where they are rope-grown in pristine Maine waters giving them plump meat – tender with a sweet flavor of the sea.

Enjoy these steamed with garlic and white wine, or in stews, soups, bouillabaisse, and other pasta dishes.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION/CARE: This product is live. Healthy mussels will be open slightly – to check if they are alive, simply tap on the shell and they should slowly close. Discard mussels that have broken or still remain open after being tapped together. Store in refrigeration upon receipt, preferably in a mesh bag, covered in damp towels or paper. Do not store in fresh water or ice. Do not store in airtight plastic containers or bags. DO NOT eat any cooked mussels whose shells remain closed. Best when prepared on the day of arrival.
