These organic mussels from Newfoundland are grown on lines in deep water sites, in depths of 40 to 120 feet. The clear, icy waters in the area provide a pure, clean growing environment, and this pampered lifestyle leaves them nearly completely free of grit. Steam them in white wine with parsley, garlic and butter, or in a tomato-based broth. Mussels make a classic pairing with pommes frites and a frosty glass of ale. Please note: while live mussels are usually closed, they do need to breathe, so you may find them slightly open, especially when not on ice. Squeeze the shell gently a few times and wait approximately a minute for a reaction. Discard if it does not respond by closing.
