  1. I have made the following recipes with fabulous results: the clam chowder, hard boiled eggs, the potato, and corn on the cob. I also make yogurt following your instructions. Thanks so much!

    1. Happy New Year, Sharon!!



      1. Laura,

        I want to prepare some mussels in my Mealthy. Your recipe looks great, but it calls for just 2 pounds of mussels. Most chefs figure one pound per person, and that would be the minimum for my son and me. Can your recipe be doubled, or even 150%, or do I need to stay with the two pounds?

        1. You can pressure steam as many mussels as will fit in the cooker!!
