Soak the mussels in cold water for 20 minutes just before cooking. When mussels breathe, they filter the water. When fresh water is filtered, the clam pushes the salt water and sand out of the shells. After 20 minutes, most of the accumulated salt and sand will be removed from the mussels.
If you are wondering how many mussels to serve, we recommend about 1/2 pound per person (starter) or about 1 pound per person (main dish).

Digging mussels is a North American term for the common way of harvesting clams (edible infaunal clams) from the surface of tidal flats or from the mud they live in. The heads of these rakes have long teeth that are attached to a basket-shaped cage in which mussels are collected.
Common mussels are easy to harvest and are not often eaten raw, so they are cheap and inexpensive to transport. However, some mussel species can easily be considered high-quality dishes due to their rarity and culinary appeal.
