Maine Rope Grown Mussels
Actual weight may vary from estimate due to seasonality and/or sourcing.
The cold, pristine waters of Penobscot Bay are renowned for producing plump, nutritious and deliciously tasty mussels. Suspended from growing ropes, they feed naturally on the ever-changing Maine tidal current, which results in a sweet fullness in flavor, a clean shell, and a consistent size. Perfect to prepare any way you like 'em. 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.
