How This Started

Living and growing up in New England, I have had the pleasure of eating lobster, clams, mussels, shrimp, and the like. But I was never formally introduced to oysters. Noticing them recently where I food shop, I started to wonder if I could shuck oysters at home. Not only did this store sell oysters, they were also selling shucking knives.

I discussed, with my wife, my interest in trying to shuck oysters. In return, she bought me my first book about oysters and a knife. Rudely, I asked, "Where is the shucking glove?" She explained to me that her research showed that a good shucking glove is expensive. She went on to say that she thought I would shuck oysters once or twice and never again. She was wrong, on both accounts. For under $10, I found a pair of gloves that work well for me and I now shuck oysters at any excuse - for my wife, friends, family, holidays, even at parties. Anytime, anywhere!

I hope this blog helps you to "Go Shuck An Oyster" and to enjoy oysters. I will share books, products, events, reviews, and other interesting oyster information worth sharing. Enjoy and get ready to Go Shuck An Oyster.

  1. Great blog. Great info. Where do we get the oysters? Just kidding...we live on the cape. We always knew they were there but never really experienced the joys of oyster love until you introduced us to it. Thank you! Bob - not Hindy lol
