Iroquois Mulled Mussels
22 oz. Iroquois Wheat Beer or Chemung Canal Towpath Ale
(or your favorite mild-non hoppy beer)
  1 stick butter
4 lbs farm-raised mussels or clams   1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup minced garlic   1 tsp salt

Rinse mussels or clams well with cold water (farm-raised mussels will not be sandy) disposing of any cracked and open shells

In a large stock pot or Dutch Oven, over high heat, bring beer, garlic, butter, olive oil & salt to a boil

Add mussels or clams to stock pot

Bring back to a boil, reduce heat, cover and steam 3-4 mins or until done.

Serve in a large bowl with crusty french bread to soak up all that tasty and wonderful broth.

Serves as many or as few people as you desire and who cares about the calorie content.
