Cleaning

1. Clean shells thoroughly:

• Scrub well under cold running water.

• Scrape off barnacles, if any, with a clam knife.

• Remove the beard, a fibrous appendage protruding from between the shells (see Figure 14.9). Do not do this until just before cooking, because it may kill the shellfish.

Figure 14.9

When cleaning mussels, pull off the fibrous beard that extends from between the shells.

2. Mussels may be sandy inside if not commercially grown.They may be soaked in brine and flour or cornmeal like clams (see previous section) to rid them of sand.
