So I got to go mussel picking the other day. A friend showed me this spot that you can get Horse mussels at low tide. After an hour of picking I got 25 gallons of mussels. After 8 hours of steaming them I got 20 lbs of mussel meat. That's not counting what we were eating while cleaning them, lol. I arranged the mussels in trays and sprinkled a little garlic salt on them. Smoked them with apple chips for about 6 hours bringing the temperature up to 165. After cooling them in the fridge overnight I ended up with 9lbs of mussel meat. I then packed them in containers and covered with canola and soya oil. They taste and smell great but the only small issue I have is the amount of pearls the mussels have in them. I must have taken 100 pearls out of them but still I seem to find more.
