cleaning/purging mussels and clams

Soup | Nov 24, 2008 01:06 PM

I'm going to do mussels and clams over the next few days. I love them but really hate the grit in some of the mussels and clams. What is the best way to get the grits/sand out of mussels and clams.

Note I do scrub each on but the issue is the sand and grit inside the animal.
