Surprise in mussels

I had a craving for mussels and thus I made my journey to my local Korean market. I got a bag of fresh mussels some clams and other odds and ends. When I got home I proceeded to clean my catch and prepared to cook. I then steamed my mussels to my liking and then ate them. To my surprise I bit into something hard assuming it was a rock I removed it from my mouth and took a look. It was a very small PEARL!! It was round on one side and flat on the other. What a surprise that made the meal even better!!!!

Ahhh, good for you, finding a pearl. It is rare. I've often been tempted to buy some mussels at the grocery store just to see if I'd find a pearl, but the chances are slim. It's best to just buy the mussels to eat, enjoy them and be totally surprised by finding a pearl, like you were.

Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
