Blue mussels are healthy, tasty and good for the environment. On the Swedish west coast the salty water provides a perfect environment for rich and tasty blue mussels as well as oysters and other bivalve molluscs.
Blåskal makes a fresh blue mussel concentrade, rich in natural umami (glutamic acid) and perfect when you need concentrated flavour from the sea for small dishes or asian cooking. It has a distinct flavour of fresh mussel and smells like the sea. Some say it reemeinds them of lobbster.
We also make a blue mussel stock perfect for everything from fish soupe to risotto. Both concentrate and stock can replace the asian fish sause. Use with sea food, chicken, vegetables, porc and a in a Bolognese.
The blue mussel concentrate and stock is 100% natural. We have not added anything. The salt in the products is sea salt that the mussels brought with them when being harvested. The mussels are steam boiled and we collect the juice on steal trays. The mussel juice is concentrated in the freezer to keep the flavours intact.
The products are sterilized at 120°C before being bottled. This gives the blue mussel stock a shelf life of 45 days in a glass bottle if stored in the fridge and the blue mussel concentrate lasts at least 60 days in the fridge. We also provide restaurants and caterers with stock and concentrate
