The Damn Yankee (3 doz Sampler)
Now, we're a little biased, but we think the best oysters in the world are grown right here in New England (to be specific, here in Duxbury and a few miles south on Cape Cod...but mostly here in Duxbury). We'd like the opportunity to prove that to you, so we've assembled a dozen each of some of the best bivalves we know of, grown by some of the best farmers we know of.
The Damn Yankee (Sampler) contains three (3) dozen oysters:
Island Creeks hailing from Duxbury, MA With a highly segmented flavor profile, these are the quintessential East Coast oysters. Strong salinity up front gives way to vegetal, mossy, buttery flavors of eel grass and seaweed which crescendo into a robust, sweet finish. It doesn't get any better than this.
Wellfleets from Wellfleet, MA Wellfleets are well known for their high salinity and their clean, simple finish. They are a bit milder than some of our other oysters except for the full blast of salt. They also have a strong vegetal undertone with a well-defined adductor muscle. Depending on the season, welfleets can have a trace of minerality towards the end.
Peter Points from Onset, MA We were blown away by the blast of salty water that comes with the first taste of these deep-cupped oysters. After the salt comes a mild, grassy flavor and at the very end, a faint hint of sweetness. Dennis and Bob grow these oysters on the bottom close to Buzzards Bay in Onset, MA.
