We were at happy with someone who was from Maryland but had never had raw oysters. He decided to try one. I swear it came out of his mouth faster than it went in. It was hilarious. Speaking of oysters, I made fried oyster sandwiches for dinner last night. They were quite tasty.

18I agree with Weaver - I have no desire to eat moving food but no reluctance to slurp down a couple of dozen oysters.
It's funny, the night this I posted here my husband mentioned how much he misses oysters. Weird psychic link thing going there.
Stan - send me some!! ;) We can get jarred oysters here but I haven't tried them. They're too expensive for what they are and they look hinky.

20Yeah, I'm sure they wouldn't ship well, but please don't put yourself out. You just go ahead and keep the shells. Our driveway at our home in Maryland is part cement and part gravel and we never had enough gravel so every time we ate oysters we put the shells on the driveway. It didn't make much difference but it was nice not to just throw them away.

21Actually, oysters ship rather well. In the Good Old Days, oysters were shipped rather long distances in specially designed barrels, topped with ice.
You can find all sorts of oyster purveyors who will ship oysters directly to you (how else would a restaurant in, say, Chicago, get them?) Shipping costs can get a bit high, though.

24Very finely chop a shallot (onion does not work) and put in a bowl of malt vinegar - one teaspoon per oyster is sufficient. We had this in France during a shell fish fest.

26I forgot about oyster shooters Monterey. I like them too but I do prefer them on the half shell. There's only so many shooters I can drink at one time.
Since my daughter is coming here for the holidays we've asked her to bring us 10 pounds of mussels and 10 pounds of oysters. We'll invite neighbors for a seafood feast. Which reminds me - I have to email her instructions.
My husband harvested fresh mussels on a camping trip several years ago. They were amazing! I've nevr had freshly harvested oysters, I'm sure they're amazing too.
