Mussles????? Prince Edward Island vs Long Island Cultured (grown on a rope)
I'.ve been seeing both in the local markets here on Long Island any suggestions ??? Thanks
Doubt you will find much difference. The PEIs are also farmed. They should both be fairly cheap buy half one and half the other and do a side by side see which you prefer. Or ask your monger which is fresher, he should be able to show you a tag that tells you when they were harvested.
One time that I bought LI mussels from a Bklyn farmers market they were significantly plumper and tastier than PEI from a fine fish store. Another time there was no difference. I don't know what sort of factors account for variability but what I'd at first thought was a slam-dunk winner now seems to be just a crap shoot.
