The ocean climate and tidal patterns in this area are conducive to raising mussels, and in the past several years, Prince Edward Island has become one of the primary providers of fresh mussels in North America.
One of the biggest selling points for fresh P.E.I. mussels are that they are consistently good.. We don’t claim to be mussel experts, but we find that these mussels are sweet and tender, and they are equally great cooked simply in white wine or in more complex sauces. They tend to be mid-sized with shells the length of your finger and a plump morsel of meat inside. They are also extremely ocean-friendly as they are grown on ropes and tend not to upset the local eco system in any way.
