Recipe StoryOysters beds dot the coast of much of the South. Oysters are a big business and an even greater delicacy. Some people slurp them down raw, others cook them to perfection. You’ll need an oyster knife and an old kitchen towel or glove ready for prying open the shells.
Oysters found in the South are of the Eastern variety. Most of the oysters sold commercially are from the coast along the Gulf of Mexico. They are prized for their sweet and mild flavor.
