Got giant Elkhorn Oysters in the house tonight. Firm meats with a high brininess, sweet flavor and a melon finish. Meat plural is us throwing down industry jargon.
From the coast of Washington – Elkhorn oysters are accustomed to fighting the tides, clamping tightly shut during low tides to preserve their liquor and to protect themselves against predators. Am assuming we would constitute as said predators. Creating a rustic looking exterior with barnacles, black & white speckled shells with shades of green.
Some come on by, as
the pencils these oysters won’t last forever.
See you upstate!
