The Damn Yankee (3 doz Sampler)

Fun Fact: Oysters can "chill" in the fridge for up to 10 days.

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 3 dozen oysters, 12 each of the following varieties (36 oysters total):

*Starting 12/17, Moon Shoals will replace Wellfleets. A special holiday offering!*

(12) Moon Shoals Oysters from Barnstable, MA

Farmer:  Jon Martin

Size: 2.5" consistent cull, grey green shells

Farming Technique: Oysters are grown in rack and bag method and then placed in custom made trays to keep them off the sandy bay floor.

Unique Factor: Jon, a full time firefighter, shakes his oysters every single day by hand to develop their deep cups.

Salinity:  We'd give these a 4.5 out of 10

Flavor Notes: Very low salt with a savory smoothness. Sweet like a Ritz cracker

(12) Island Creeks 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.
(12) Crowe's Pastures from Dennis, MA -  This crew does not need a boat to access their grant In the sandy open water of Cape Cod Bay, they can just ride out there in a truck! Trucks do not float, so these can only be harvested at low tide. In terms of flavor, A burst of salty ocean water upfront mellows to some nice sweet vegetal notes and a hint of cream. Opaque meat and a firm texture round out the perfect petite package.


(Note: Wellfleets will be back in the Damn Yankee in mid-January)
