Flavors ~ Oysters

By now, y'all know that the 'flavor' for the week is oysters . . . perfect timing, since this is januaRy and it happens to be New Year's ! The flavor suggestions all come from The Flavor Bible. Along with Oysters, the recommend flavors include . . . lime, horseradish, WINE and Champagne(among others). Perfection!
This 'recipe' is as much a process as anything. Please follow along closely.
Oysters with Pearls
First . . . a trip to Whole Foods to find the freshest local gulf oysters. Now plan to have friends over for a New Year's shuckin' party.
Mince horseradish with vinegar and process to a fine pulp. Place tiny rounded scoops in a freezer. Slice limes. Get out the garden gloves and shuckin' knife. Pour the wine! Perfection!
Join us for the ride on Facebook and our blog Flavors.

Happy Cooking y'all~

When very young and very impressionable, my grandfather was eating oysters and explained to me you must drink beer after each one so they cannot swim back up to your mouth. Haven't been able to have oysters yet...
