mmmm mussels...

Well it's mussel-picking time in Rankin Inlet. What a glorious time of year.

A bunch of us went out at low tide yesterday to pick our haul of mussels (quite likely 20lbs worth...) and then ate them at the cabin shortly thereafter.


Of course, there were TONS to spare... and so the boy and I are going to try to re-create a dish we had in Greece.... which we dubbed "curry-saffron mussels."

Here's hoping it works out.......

Oh my GOD. Those look AMAZING. Are those really from your crop?

Heh, I wish.

This is actually a photo of the ones we had in Greece.

While our crop was quite tasty... they were not quite as divine as these.
