Olive oil, to fry

1 leek, washed and finely sliced, tough outer leaves removed

1 garlic clove, finely diced

100ml medium cider

100ml single cream

Parsley

Crusty bread

Method

Wash and clean the mussels and discard any that are broken

Put a splash of olive oil in a frying pan and cook the leeks on a medium heat with the garlic and cook until tender, take out and reserve. In the same pan turn the heat up high and heat up the pan until red hot. Put the mussels in with the cider and put the lid on and cook until the shells have opened. Take the mussels out using a colander making sure you catch the cooking liquor. Add the leeks and cream to the cooking liquor and pour over the mussels.
