Best to Buy
Look for fresh mussels that smell clean, like the ocean, with tightly closed shells.
Prep & Store
Refrigerate mussels in a bowl covered with a damp towel. Never store mussels in water or in an airtight container—either method will kill them. Cook mussels as soon as possible, but keep for up to a week.
Quick & Easy Recipe
In a large saucepan, boil mussels in white wine. Reduce heat to a simmer until shells open; discard unopened mussels. Serve in a bowl with broth.
