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 - a dozen of each of the following varieties:
(12) Moon Shoals Oysters from Barnstable, MA - these oysters have a smaller consistent cull - grown by farmer Jon Martin, are grown via the rack and bag method and then placed in custom made trays to keep them off the sandy bay floor. This method leaves them with very low salt and a savory smoothness. They are 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)
