What is the little tubular glass looking thingamajig in a Razor? What is its function?
If the beach is open for razors - then are mussles free of the PSP biotoxin also?
What is the best way to get the grit out of a mussel? I brought some home, but put the incoming tidal water in the bucket - for a day, hoping that they would clean themselves out -they were alive, and opened when I cooked them, but they were very gritty - was the brackish water not enough salt for them and they went inactive - or should I put cornmeal in with the water to let them sift through that?
The grit wasn't really in the clam meat - just around it. - I only got 1 rinse on them before I left.
