    15-Minute Oyster Stew

    Source of Recipe

    From "Scratch" by Maria Rodale

    Recipe Introduction

    "I have loved oyster stew since I was a small girl. For some reason, I remember it as a Christmas food. Fresh oysters are essential to give the stew its ocean-y goodness. The other essential ingredient is oyster crackers. The crackers give the soup its thickness and satisfying fullness."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 1 stick (4 ounces) butter
    ◦ 1 pound shucked raw oysters, with their liquid
    ◦ 4 cups whole milk
    ◦ Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    ◦ Oyster crackers


    In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat until slightly browned.

    Add the oysters and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until their sides are ruffled.

    Add the milk and salt and pepper to taste and cook for 2 to 4 minutes, until warmed through. Be careful to never let the soup boil. Serve with the oyster crackers.

    Serves 4
