MusselsMussels make an easy and delicious appetizer.  What you’ll need for 3-4 people:

  • 2 pounds of mussels
  • lot of fresh crushed garlic
  • enough white wine to cover the bottom of the pan – 1/4 to 1/2 an inch of white wine (we used a huge $5 bottle of chardonnay)
  • chopped white onions

Wash and scrub the mussels in the sink and pull off the "beards."  Throw away any that are open and don’t close when you wash them.  Soak in cold fresh water for at least an hour.

Put all of the ingredients in a frying pan, bring to a boil and boil until the shells are all open. 

Serve warm with melted butter on the side.
