sharonI hear you about not wanting to sit in front of a computer all day!

Though I'm a seafood freak, I cannot count myself among the ranks of oyster lovers. However, if I were to enjoy them, it'd be in this stew!

Muse in the KitchenI will count myself with the non-purist oyster lovers :)I do love them raw on the half shell, but oh my give me fried oysters and I'm in seventh heaven (my sister made fried oysters over the Thanksgiving weekend last month (I'm in Canada) and that surpassed the turkey for me! This looks like a great oyster stew recipe.

Melissa*also raising hand*

I don't care for ice cream either. I'm not surprised about Krysta - she and I always say we're twins. ;)

I have never eaten an oyster, as I told you. I will definitely make the effort at some point though. I wish you lived closer so I could let you do it for me. :p

KavsComing from a part of the globe where soups and so on are usually clear, is there a difference between chowder and stew? Either way, it looks hearty for a rainy day!

p/s: Don, you know i love your pics but that 2nd shot of the oysters got me picturing something entirely different... something out of my old high school bio lab...

Abby @ mangerlavilleYou don't want to skimp on the quality of your oysters, because it is simply dangerous. They look beautiful. I have never had an oyster stew, but since I love seafood as well, I would probably love it.

Lisa GrantI am funny about oysters. I like the small Md or eastern shore ones but don't like the big goopy Pacific oysters. The stew looks delicious.

KimDonald, do you want to believe that I have never had oyster stew. I am a big clam fan and learning to appreciate oysters. You did a splendid job as it looks just wonderful!

[eatingclub] vancouver || jsThat looks good, really good. I have half a jar of oysters in the fridge, but I've been too lazy to do anything with it the past couple of days. Maybe I'll try this stew.

FoodycatThere is an MFK Fischer story about oyster stew that has always fascinated me - but I have never tried it! I don't like raw oysters but I like the flavour when they are lightly cooked, so I suspect I would love this.
