having grown up on the chesapeake bay (or at least in 
baltimore) there are lots of things to look at regarding 
oysters... how you are using them, what conveyance, how 
long you need to keep them.

i do miss slurping them down raw off the shell with some 
horseradish and lemon.

all i can say is we laugh when we see them sold in 
albuquerque for 59 cents each in the shell.

has anyone opened a jar of oysters lately?  there is 
usually one the size of oyst-zilla and two or three little 
ones.  very disappointing.  great for stuffing but not for 
stew. 8(
