Greetings, a chilly weekend is on its way!

 

Oyster stew with MT. Crawford’s heavy cream, real sweet heavy cream with the BEST Oysters in the Valley!! Please don’t make oyster stew with chalk cream from a big box store,  make your stew rich with MT. Crawford’s heavy cream and unsalted butter!

As a Chef, I can say, “You Cannot Make Great Wine From Bad Grapes!”

Pickford’s has found a very unique oyster, called “Pemaquid.”

Pemaquid Oyster
With its hard brown and white shell, the Pemaquid Oyster has a firm texture and deliciously light and lemony flavor. Those new to the joys of oysters will appreciate its clean taste and refreshing liquor.
“This is a must try!”

Blue Point Oysters
Named after the town of Blue Point, Long Island, these are probably the oysters you will most commonly find on the East Coast side of your raw bar. These medium-sized oysters are mild, pleasantly salty and very meaty. Blue points are great beginner oysters, as they won’t overwhelm you.

Flounder
Flavor Profile: Mild Sweet Taste

Texture Profile: Lean, Firm, Flakey

 It’s born upright, but falls to one side, then the eye on the bottom migrates around to the top. They lie on the bottom, bury in and wait for shrimp and baitfish to come by then ambush. They feed mostly on shrimp, crabs and small baitfish, so their flavor is extremely mild and the texture is very light, almost to a fault. Flounder are not bottom feeders!

Harvest Location(s): Western Atlantic, European waters, Northwestern Pacific
Sustainability: Aquaponic Fisheries

Farmed or Wild-Caught: Wild
