Oysters and skiing go hand-in-hand!
2008-03-27 03:22:00
I'm serious, skiers love oysters, especially New England skiers due to our proximity to the ocean.

Ham for Easter, Oysters for Christmas and Turkey for Thanksgiving!

A few days ago I made a gorgeous cheesecake and popped it into the freezer to take to my parents this weekend for Easter. Yep... it's a 'holiday' again and time to pack up the kidlets and the Boyfriend of Kat, and head up to the land of extended family for an Easter Egg Hunt (I have the eggs bought and stuffed already) and a big meal. More than likely we'll be having ham. Why do I say this?

Imagine what if oysters did not produce pearls, but your favorite cookies instead. Would they still be as valuable to you then?

Diamonds in Oysters?

What kind of girl wouldn't like diamonds? :)I know I love diamonds. I own a few, but wish I have more. Well, what if one day I find an oyster and open it to find instead of a pearl, a big sparkling diamond! Wow, only in my dreams I guess, LOL. Don't get me wrong, I like pearls too but I will choose diamonds over pearls anytime. So here's this website called Here's a short description of what the site is all about:Millions of people LOVE to eat oysters. Whether you eat them in moderation or by the dozen, these delightful mollusks provide a low calorie protein(1) that are an excellent source of zinc, vitamin B-12, and omega-3 fatty acids.(2)While not a serious threat to healthy individuals, consumption of raw or undercooked oysters by at-risk individuals may cause serious illness or even death from Vibrio vulnificus bacteria. If you have liver disease, diabetes or a weak immune system, you should avoid raw oysters.Without question, there is an overwhelming need ...
Oysters Are Health Food
2008-03-14 19:53:00
I mentioned a few days ago about the benefits of gulf oysters for sexual drive. But, they have more benefits. There are a lot of nutrients in this tasty little morsel that are needed in our bodies. Gulf oysters are an excellent source of zinc, vitamin B-12, and omega-3 fatty acids which reduces triglycerides (the bad fat in the blood).Six medium oysters contain only 58 calories.However, it is important how to eat oysters. There are dangers to eating raw oysters. Gulf Oysters are healthier, because of the way they are processed.An oyster pumps 25 gallons of water through its body each day.Those that reside in polluted waters, can have potentially harmful organisms deposited in the oyster. Therefore, fresh water, or raw oysters from areas that are polluted aren't goody to eat. Never eat an oyster that was opened before cooking/serving, dead oysters increase the health risks. Cooked oysters, and Gulf Oysters, are a different story.Are Gulf Oysters Healthy? YESThe GOIC believes that an...

About Those Oysters
2008-03-03 19:02:00
I don't know about you, but I LOVE oysters. My husband, who grew up in the Gulf (as a Navy brat he moved around a lot--Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana), introduced me to new ways to eat them and I love them all. Deep fried oysters, smoked oysters, steamed oysters, oyster cakes, and most of all yummy raw Gulf oysters. Just shuck 'em and eat 'em!A by-product of the oyster that increases my love and respect for the ugly non-kosher beasties is the pearl (interesting that those who keep kosher can still wear pearls, hmmm?). But thinking of pearls also got me thinking of what else it would be fun to discover in an oyster, what could make them even more valuable (to me anyway). And suddenly I had it--crystals!Yes, crystals of all forms and colors. Clear quartz and rose quartz, amethyst and blue zinc, all sorts of beautiful sea made crystals. Imagine opening an ugly oyster shell and finding, not a glob of luminous pearly white stuff, but a gorgeous glowing crystal. It would make ...

My Mum has always been a big fan of oysters, they taste good and sometimes they have nice surprises in their shells! Like pearls.Being a dog, I've read that oysters aren't bad for us to eat in moderation - an occasional indulgence in seafood is good for a pup. But not good as a steady diet. Everything in moderation, right? Mollusks provide a low calorie protein that are an excellent source of zinc, vitamin B-12, and omega-3's.I know it sounds a little far fetched, but I was asked, what if Gulf oysters had other surprises in them, as a dog what would I like that surprise to be? So I got to thinking...what if those oysters came with squeakies inside, like most all of my other toys. I could eat the oyster then have loads of fun trying to de-squeak the darn thing.But I would have to make sure and have Mum cook those oysters thoroughly. Why? There is always a risk for certain individuals in eating those little guys raw. Eating raw oysters can be dangerous for ‘at risk’ people beca...

I went to my fish market last weekend and bought some king crab legs, to make crab stuffed ostrich, the legs were huge and when I removed all the meat I realised there was far too much meat for just the ostrich I had.

I Love Oysters!
2008-02-28 11:57:00
I am a lover of seafood and one of my favorites are oysters. I literally grew up with oysters. Back home in the Philippines when I was little, my family used to have a fishing business so we have all kinds of fish and seafood available all the time. I love shrimp and oysters the most. My mother used to cook oysters with lots of garlic and some type of vinegar sauce to go with it. Mmmm..yummy!By the way, I stumbled upon this website called It's a website that's very educational in regards to proper oyster consumption and how one can avoid the risk of getting the Vibrio vulnificus bacteria from eating raw or undercooked oysters. There's also a very helpful information on the website about how Gulf oysters undergo post-harvest treatment processes which are (1): individual quick-freezing (IQF), low heat pasteurization or heat-cool pasteurization (HCP), and high-hydrostatic pressure (HPP).To learn more about oysters and these treatment processes, please go to: www.b...
Dumb Oysters!
2008-02-27 16:26:00
My kids love corny jokes. They're really on a kick about using classic jokes these days on just about anyone. Here's one:First Oyster: Where ya from dude?Second Oyster: I dunno.First Oyster: What do you mean, you don't know where you are from?Second Oyster: Oh, dat's right - Flori - Duh!LOL! I know it's stupid, but jokes like this are supposed to be. Anyway, Florida is home to many varieties of yummy oysters. Some of the best are Gulf oysters from our own Gulf of Mexico and Appalachiacola Bay. If you love oysters, you need to be aware of precautions to be sure you don't get sick from eating them. The website Be Oyster Aware has great information about oysters, how to prepare them and and great recipes too!
I love Oysters
2008-02-27 06:05:00
Are you among the many people that loves to eat oysters? Oysters are one of my favorite among exotic foods. I like Gulf oysters those that have the highest quality and safest oysters. Oysters are not only delicious, but they're also very nutritious and well balanced. Your excellent source of zinc, protein, carbohydrates and lipids, vitamin B-12, and omega-3 fatty acids. Oysters are an excellent source of vitamins, that's why oysters are sometimes expensive especially to places where they are not harvested. A lot of people eat oysters in different ways. Some eat oysters raw, others love it smoked, boiled, baked, fried or cooked depending on their personal preference. Precautions should be taken when consuming them because like any other foods especially raw, oysters may carry bacteria. Consumption of raw or undercooked oysters by diabetic or individuals with weak immune system or with liver disease may cause serious illness or even death from Vibrio vulnificus bacteria, bacteria...
Giant Oysters Attack London
2008-02-27 05:16:00
The full moon illuminated the foggy skies of London, hanging in the sky behind Big Ben. The moonlight reflected on the waters of the River Thames as the water moved at its normal pace into the ocean. But then the water began to ripple and become disturbed as something rose out of the waters. Two giant Crassostrea gigas mutanious, mutated oysters, rose from the waters into the foggy night. The fog swirled around as the moonlight reflected off their glistening shells as they began to float over the city. As they moved in the darkness, they emitted a mist that became betwixt with the fog. A Royal guard at Buckingham Palace saw the flying oysters and notified the Royal Air Force. The RAF hailed the intruders on all frequencies, and when no response of any kind was made, they scrambled a wing of Tornado F3s into the air. They made a pass past the oysters once with no response, but on a seconds pass, one oyster shot out a stream of pearls at one of the planes, badly damaging it, forcing t...

I made this the other night, it is another recipe from a zaar member and I loved it, it such a different way of preparing oysters apart from the more traditional kilpatrick, mornay and rockafeller. They are spicy, so if your not a spicy lover these are not for you, I love spicy food and these were a great combination and you still got the flavour of the oyster coming through.I am going to be posting a few zaar members recipes as I have made so many lately, but I also need to catch up on mine, I think, I have about 3 or 4 recipes still waiting to be posted.I am also thinking about starting back catering again, I have catered before for small dinner parties and for large parties of about 50 people, although never anything huge like a few hundred, but am always up for new challenges.

Fine American Caviar and Fresh Oysters for Valentines

Fine American caviar is an increasingly popular, affordable alternative to imported Russian caviars. American caviar has an extraordinary sweet and buttery taste that comes from sturgeon indigenous to the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. Its color ranges from dark gray to black.

Mike McHenry, New Jersey Man Who Finds Pearl in his Fried Oysters
2008-01-12 16:03:00
After just two weeks that George and Leslie Brock find a pearl in a plate of steamed clam, it happened again to Mike McHenry, a New Jersey man who was eating fried oysters when he chomped down on a pea-sized pearl."You might break your teeth on it if you crunch down too hard," the 60-year-old Washington Township man said of his discovery at Russo's Ristorante in Washington Borough.McHenry's find was rare, according to Gef Flimlin, a marine extension agent with Rutgers Cooperative Extension, who said 95 percent of pearls are cultured for production, unlike the naturally formed pearl McHenry found."It's unusual to find one in this type of oyster," McHenry said. "Like one in a million." Link

Stolen oysters
2007-12-19 11:57:00
With oyster rustling likely to become the industry’s biggest threat, NSW police have been trained to recognise the stolen molluscs. Growers’ groups have warned of an expected surge in thefts over the summer harvesting period. As many as 55,000 Sydney rock oysters were reported stolen last year, although the actual figure is thought to be much higher, obscured by under-reporting in the industry. Police in Port Maquarie and Forster have recently been trained to recognise stolen oysters and will increase surveillance of oyster beds and road-side vendors over Christmas. DataDot technology, sprayed on to oysters to form a microscopic signature, has been used in South Australia to cut theft and a trial is being conducted in NSW. The chairman of the NSW Farmers Association’s oyster committee, Mark Bulley, said the issue was becoming a priority. “The size of the pilfering that goes on is a concern,” Mr Bulley said. “I think just about every river does hav...
Oysters Mornay

I posted a recipe for Oysters Kilpatrick a while ago, so I thought I would post one for Mornay, I have to say kilpatrick are probably my favourite, but mornay are very good. I think it just depends on personal preference and tastes.I will post a recipe for 4 as a starter, when I make oysters I like to make half kilpatrick and half mornay. It was my sisters birthday on the weekend and this in one of the dishes I did, my sis has never eaten an oyster and always proclaimed yuk. Well we managed to convince her to try a mornay one, she loved it and so decided to also try the kilpatrick, she couldn't believe she had been missing out on something so good for so long.Ingredients24 Oysters (half shell, you can buy oysters in some parts of the world on the half shell, much easier, I can't I have to buy whole, so if you have to buy whole, please make sure you use an oyster knife to open.)2 Cups Milk1 Cup grated Gruyere cheese2 Tablespoons Parmesan2 Teaspoons cornflour2 Tablespoons Parmesan ...

I love Oysters although I am not so keen on them natural, I enjoy oysters mornay, oysters Rockefeller and kilpatrick.
