Linda, they are beautiful... don't think I've ever eaten them, but the shells ARE beautiful! Hopefully you will find something artistic to do with them.
Hi Rian, thanks, I have made wind chimes with scallop shells before, perhaps I'll make one with these, I love the outer dark blue rim and pale shimmery inside. Yummy.
They are gorgeous, and I do hope you make something with them. I love the photo and the way you cropped it, and what looks like a bamboo table or tray in background. I, myself, would print that photo and frame it!
Hi Barbara, thanks, I have printed photos on plain paler and frames, you are welcome to use my print for that. The bamboo is a bamboo chest I have had for eons that I got at cost plus that is now called new world market. Bamboo things last forever it seems.
Nature's bounty is incredibly generous isn't it?A very happy Christmas to you and yours.
Hi Sue, thanks, so much, same to you and your family.
How shipping seafood has changed that you can have mussels from Maine in Georgia. We had them steamed in white wine with shallots last week. Ours came from Stonington, about fifteen miles away. There's something lovely about enjoying things from one place while living in different parts of the country.Have a wonderful Christmas!
Hi Suzi, thanks, I was surprised to see them at the grocery, one package left and they weren't that expensive. and I think they might have been wild, I think I might make a wind chime with them when I get around to it.
My brother in-law used to haul mussels for Great Eastern Mussel in Tenants Harbor Me. They were one of the first mussel farms. We used to get a whole bunch for holidays for next to nothing in cost. I can buy mussels from that company around here and they aren't that expensive... especially compared to clams.
Hi Michele, thanks, I was so surprised to see them here, and amazing that they are so much less than the clams. I think my grocery will only get them during special occasions, too bad cause they are good. I am not sure which company these came from and I've already thrown out the trash, I think they might have been wild though because some has small stones inside and there were also a couple of other types of shells in the pack, but what do I know. te he.
I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
