How can I reuse or recycle mussel shells?
John and I went out for dinner the other day and someone on the next table to us was eating a big bowl of mussels.
After she’d finished her fishy starter, there was, of course, a big pile of shells left over – which naturally got my recycling juices going.
They’re not realistically compostable in most gardens because they’ll take so very long to break down and may attracted rodents in the meantime – so any suggestions for how they can be reused instead?
Are there any large scale recycling/reusing purposes for them that restaurants might be able to get involved with?
