First pour all the mussels into a large pan fill to well cover the mussels with water and stir vigorously and leave for 5 minutes then take out and discard any that float, stir again and wait a further 5 minutes again take out and throw away any that float.

Make sure all the mussels are alive before you cook them, if any of them are open, tap them on the sink or work surface, if they don't close, throw them away.

Scoop out of the pan all the mussels and put into another large pan and place on the lid,then cook them for about 4 minutes on a high heat to steam or until they open.

Take out and throw away any that won't open,then remove the top shell from each mussel and discard.then.
