Billi Bi Soup

Cuisine: American

Category: seafood

Servings: 4


3-1/2 lbs. mussels, scrubbed and de-bearded
1 cup white wine
water, to cover
1 stalk celery, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 bay leaf
1 quart heavy cream


Place all ingredients except cream into a large pot. Bring to boil gently and simmer 45 minutes. Strain mixture, discarding vegetables and mussels. (Mussels may be shelled and used for another dish). Reduce the resulting liquid to about 3 cups. The stock will be very strong tasting. Add heavy cream and return to boil. Simmer 5 minutes and serve. If a thicker consistency is desired, add a small amount of cornstarch and water. Be sure to wash the mussels thoroughly, removing all sand.
