Very easy to make and simple mussel recipe. This also a very basic recipe to cook mussels. It reminds me of my childhood. Muschelessen are a family tradition. The family spent hours eating fresh mussels served with bread, salted butter and a glas of beer. There is not restaurant or pub here in the Rhineland not offering mussels from September on.
