The color of Whitewater Blue Mussels is in fact a dark blue. Measuring about 2-3 inches in length, they are famous for their deep-flavored, sweet, plump and tender meats. One could say this particular variety is one of the most popular!
Mussels have been enjoyed for centuries. In fact, prehistoric settlements in Scotland can often be identified by the large mounds of mussel shells found nearby.
We recommend steaming Whitewater Blue Mussels with butter, garlic and a Belgian beer. The broth is delicious! You may also lightly broil them on the half shell, stuffed with seasoned bread crumb or marinated in lemon and fresh herbs.
Blue Mussels pack an excellent source of protein, Vitamin B12, Iron, Manganese and Selenium. They are also a good source of Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Foliate, Phosphorus and Zinc.
