Muscles

I bought 3lbs if muscles yesterday, kept them in the fridge in ice to cook tonight. Almost all are open some bit. If it's a tiny bit opened is that ruined?

I would throw away all of the Mussels.

Tap them. If they shut, they are fine. They are breathing. If they don't shut, Chuck them. I gather muscles at the coast and they are often open a little. They don't get much fresher than when attached to a rock.

At times, my Kindle chooses the word and it slips by me.

As Susan wrote, tap the mussels - and if they close, they're perfectly fine.
