Eating Oysters in months not containing an "R"
No July does not have an "R" in it! I must say the above were quite tasty last night with just a squeeze of lemon.
To dispell the myth read below.
- Folklore says that oysters should only be eaten in months with an "R" in them-September,October, etc. Truth is Oysters can be eaten 12 months a year. The notion that oysters should not be eaten in "R-Less" months--that is, months that that occur during warm weather may have started during the days when oysters were shipped without adequate refrigeration and could spoil. But today all that has changed and we can enjoy oysters 12 months a year.
