We consider these mussels from Fowey in Cornwall to be among the finest we have tasted.

Supplied live in 1 kg nets, these mussels are ready for you to cook and enjoy. The mussels are naturally grown on organic cotton ropes in the clean deep Cornish water. These mussels are organic and sustainable and treated with the utmost care to bring you plump, meaty, flavoursome mussels. The wild mussel seed is collected on ropes out to sea and grown on in the farm in St Austell Bay.

We think 1 kg of mussels is enough for dinner for two adults. Once you have received your mussels place them in a bowl in the fridge, covered with a damp cloth. Rinse the mussels to clean, remove any beards and discard any shells that do not close when tapped. Live shellfish should be cooked as soon as possible, do not keep for longer than three days.
