Mussels with cider and cream

I bought a bag of mussels on the way home from work last night, all nice and clean ones.

I had shallots, garlic, cream, cider and some persillade so it was a simple matter to cook the shallot and garlic off in some butter, add the mussels with the cider and cream and steam them for a few minutes.

A dollop of persillade was added and mixed in and that was it.

Some crusty bread and the rest of the cider to drink completed a lovely simple supper.
