    Gulf oysters are foul. Need northern cold water oysters in winter months.

    No, fried only. They sure do slurp them down on the coast in TX and in New Orleans.

    Not anymore.
    I used to love them raw with lemon and Calvados when I was living overseas a million years ago. The trips to Bretagne were fantastic in those days. And the mademoiselles were sweet. Makes me nostalgic.

    That’s right. Warm water oysters suck.

    Pacific Northwest, New England, Canadian oysters are where it’s at.

    Never eat gulf oysters in the summer, though I stick with the Chesapeake and north myself.

    Only during winter months. Might skip them altogether anymore. After 5 surgeries from E Coli damage seven years ago, I take the possibility of food born illness a bit more seriously.

    I ate them when I was younger, last time at least 15 years ago.
    I'm not eating any raw meat including sushi, ever.
    Flesh eating bacteria, parasitic worms.
    Some guy (on news) had a giant tapeworm (like 5 ft) from eating raw fish.
    The worm cyst are in the meat.
    Like a female dog that ever had worms but is now cured, she can still pass worm cyst to puppies when they nurse, cyst activate, puppies get roundworm if not treated.

    As my Grandad taught me, only in months with an "R" in them and never from warm water.

    A bit o cocktail sauce (horseradish/ketchup) and a squeeze of lemon, slurp.

    With the obligatory jokes about vitalizing certain aspects of life based on qty consumed. Grandad assured us boys (cousins) that 9 out of 12 usually do the trick... 9 times Grandad?!?! LOL Grandma would always give us boys a smile and a raised eyebrow. And eat at least a half dozen herself.

    It's really quite simple folks: No R in the month, no oysters.

    Chesapeake Bay oysters are blah as well. Good for cooking but not for raw eating.

    Raw oysters = bait as far as I am concerned.

    I don't eat anything raw. Including "seared" tuna. Seafood must be fully cooked.

    I had someone tell me they thought raw oysters looked like something that fell out of a cow's nose. I couldn't shake the visual so fried only now.
