Do you eat oysters?

Post by Tom »

:roll: Oysters are traditional fare at this time of year but neither of us eats them. It's nothing to do with vegan reservations, It's because you pay a fortune for a weighty object that can be a tussle to open and then, when eventually you do get inside, you find a small, salty, slimy creature that tastes vaguely fishy if you're lucky. It doesn't help that these hapless molluscs are supposed to cringe when you douse them with lemon juice.

For the same money you could buy so many other things that would be great deal more pleasant to eat.

As I said a couple of weeks ago, the oyster fair at Sardent (23) is an annual event for our group. Much eating of oysters during and for a week after. I actually considered buying 2kg for a little over 10€ in lidl today but in the event, didnt.
I can recommend Sardent for a visit during the 3 day fair. Loads of different foods on sale.
PS I'm not sure how many are in 2kg because I usually buy them in dozens. I'd guess about 2 dozen.
Gone to better place, which, quite frankly, could be anywhere.

You can eat them cooked with garlic parsley and fine bread crumbs (chaplure?)

I eat them from time to time and enjoy them. I had a McD today and enjoyed that too.
