“This has been served on Christmas Eve in our family forever. We also serve Chili, for those who don't care for oysters. Great with buttered crackers warmed in the oven, or plain oyster crackers straight out of the bag.”

I wanted to change a few things on this recipe, it turns my father had copied it down wrong. Although this is a recipe from my dads family, my grandmother taught my mother how to make it. When I fixed a pot last night I was so disappointed, I called mom and discovered dad had given me his



excellent! perfect! exactly how my grandmother made it... simple and delicious! if others want to stick a bunch of other stuff it in - fine - let them do it individually... as for me ... I'll take the simple taste of this delicious oyster stew



Very bland as is. I melted 1/2 cup butter in the pan, added the oysters with the juice, added garlic salt, paprika, and celery seed. Cooked the oysters until done, added 2% milk and heated through. Much better with these additions. By adding the oyster juice it actually tasted like oyster stew.
