This recipe calls for 3 quarts of mussels. How many lbs would that be? Thanks!

I use 2 2-pound bags to serve 4. These days mussels seem to mostly come that way.

Thanks Lindsay-Jean! I'll just note that I used 2lbs for the recipe and the ratio was perfect for a sauce lover, though only (over) fed two.

Most conversions I've seen say that 1 quart of mussels weighs between 1 and 1.5 pounds, so I'd probably go with around 4 pounds.
