Mussels are sold live in net bags or frozen in the shells. If purchasing live mussels, tap shells lightly to make sure the shells close tightly. Mussels can also be bought individually at seafood markets.
How to Clean Mussels
Wash mussels under cold running water, pulling or scraping off the "beards" that are attached at the bottoms of the shells.
