Worlds Best Oyster Soup Recipe

Here we are going to make the World's Best Oyster Soup. My Grandmother made this Oyster Soup every fall and I could not wait until the fresh oysters came in our local store in September of each year. Then the oysters were sold shelled in pints , or quarts and my Grandmother would always buy a quart.

She would divide the quart of oysters in half. Half the oysters would go into her blender to be pureed and the other half went into the pot so people could see the oysters. The finely chopped oysters and their juices went into the pot also.

And sometimes when she knew people were coming for the oyster stew dinner she was putting on , several quarts of oysters went into her huge pot. But below I'm going to tell you how to make the oyster stew with a quart of oysters and if you like oysters I think you will agree that it is the best oyster stew you have ever tasted.

For Your World's Best Oyster Stew You Will Need.

1. One Quart of Oysters with their juices.

2. 1/2 Pound Real Butter.

3. 1 Cup Green Onions chopped up very fine.

4. 1 Gallon Half and Half.

Now what you want to do is cook your green onions in your butter until they are tender. You can now pour your onions and butter into a large stock pot. You now want to add half the oysters and their juices to the pot and all your gallon of half and half.

You will now want to use your blender and puree the other half of the oysters very fine and then add them to the pot. Stir your pureed oysters up into the pot so everything is well mixed.

Now you will want to slowly bring your pot up to a boil. As soon as it reaches a boil though be sure to turn it down to a very slow simmer. If you wish you can now deep fry four oysters to garnish the top of each bowl of soup and you will also want crumbled fried bacon to garnish each bowl of soup. My grandmother always garnished each bowl of her oyster soup with four deep fried oysters per bowl and a tablespoon of crumbled fried bacon.

Once you make this Oyster Soup I think you will agree that it is truly the World's Best Oyster Soup.

Now comes the fun part. My Grandmother would set her Oyster Condiments in the center of the table so people could add what they wanted in each bowl of oyster stew.Those oyster condiments included.

1. Tabasco Sauce.

2. Ketchup.

3. Malt Vinegar.

4. Freshly Ground Black Pepper.

5. Finely Chopped Tomatoes.

6. Ground Cayenne Pepper.

7. Finely Chopped Jalapeno Slices.

People could add what ever of the condiments they want to in each delicious bowl of oyster stew.

      Thank you for sharing your grand mother’s oyster’s stew, it is a very good version. I added 2 tbspns of Worcestershire sauce.

      My husband was so happy and said that was exactly like the oyster soup we had in a restaurant in NOLA. (New Orleans)
