Ingredients

3-4 dozen mussels in shell

1 cup white vinegar

1 cup mussel stock

1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 heaped teaspoon Manawa Kānuka Honey

1 tablespoon sliced or chopped chillies

2 cloves of garlic (sliced or chopped)

2 teaspoons of chopped garlic

1 white or red onion (chopped in chunks or finely sliced)

1 lemon juice

(If you like a lemon kick then add the grated or finely sliced rind)

Directions

  1. Wash mussels in shell thoroughly.
  2. Place in steamer over a pot with just 1 cup of water and steam for about 2-3 minutes.
  3. The mussels should be open and cooked softly but not shriveled. You can test one to check.
  4. Save the stock that is now in the pot below the steamer.
  5. Remove the beard from the mussels as you shell them, and place in a bowl.
  6. Cover and chill.
  7. Make the mariade by heating the vinegar, stock, seasoning, Kānuka Honey, chilli, garlic and lemon to simmering point then allow to cool, then chill.
  8. Layer the mussels and onion into jars, adding the marinade as you go.
  9. Top up each jar with marinade then seal.

If you can wait refrigerate for at least 24 hours before enjoying!

Keep well chilled and these mussels will last at least a week in the fridge. Unless you eat them all before that.
