Fall is here, and it's time to break out the sweaters and coats. As much as I'm dreading the coming rains that are always predictable here in the pacific northwest, this is my favorite season!
Whenever we go out to our favorite pub, I always order the mussels and frites. The fresh mussels with its herby broth and fresh frites to soak all that goodness up is hard to beat. I have to admit I was a bit intimidated with this recipe and always shied away from it until I finally took the plunge and made the recipe - wow, it's really simple to prepare. This recipe comes from River Cottage Every day. Feel free to swap out the cider for white wine if you prefer. I will say the cider gives a nice refreshing punch, so give it a try!
