Oysters

Guest post from: Constance Rodgers


Did you know that there are over one hundred different types of edible oysters? They are a food that you either love or hate. I’ve found that if you love oysters, you really love them. You seize any opportunity you get when you are on the coast to eat them. If you are truly an oyster lover you like them raw. You don’t need a cracker and horseradish. Oyster lovers are content pulling them straight off of the shell and eating them. I was watching direct tv when I was cooking (yes I have a television in my kitchen). There was a show that highlighted Oysters in South Carolina. They were dressing oysters with things I had never seen. Some had wasabi, some had brown sugar, and some were swallowed with bloody mary mix and vodka! All I could think about was how smooth salty flavor of the oyster was being lost, what a shame! For those of us who have moved from the coast to a more landlocked part of the country, seeing destroyed by so many toppings almost break your heart.
