Rope grown Cornish mussels are simply fantastic. We source ours through Fowey Seafarms, run by Dave and Sue Hancock. They developed the first open water farm in St Austell Bay on the south coast of Cornwall. They grow quickly in the rich waters and this gives a lovely plump, succulent sweet meat that is delicious.
The mussels are harvested and then purified in tanks with ultra-violet filters to ensure they are perfect. It may seem a little daunting but actually cooking mussels is really straightforward and we have some great recipes for you to try.
Ready cooked and individually frozen, thought by some to be the best of the mussel family. Imported from New Zealand these are ready cooked in the 1/2 shell, ready to eat or add to your recipe.
Ready cooked and individually frozen, just use what you want out of the bag and keep the rest in the freezer.
