KIRO Radio – About Penn Cove Mussels

At the Penn Cove Mussels MuseFest tent, you see two hands. One is holding a bowl and the other is pouring a spoonful of mussels into it

Ahead of MusselFest

With MusselFest coming up, KIRO Radio’s weekend cooking show with super-chef Tom Douglas takes us to Penn Cove for, what else? Penn Cove Mussels.  Tina Noel talks with Penn Cove Mussels co-owner Raul Jefferds and heads out on a boat to get an up-close look at the operation.  You’ll hear how they create homes for mussels using weighted ropes hanging in the water.  “There’s so many reasons that mussels are special,” Jeffords explains.  The big reason, he says is that they are, “more tender and sweeter” than other mussels.  For the rest, listen to Tina Nole’s interview with Jeffords.
