After a long day and with sore shoulders, we sat down to enjoy an amazing meal prepared by our friend Chef Jack Canter, made from our day’s harvest and of course, White Stone Oysters.

Our Savory & Stewpendous Recipe for Oyster Stew

Our Savory & Stewpendous Recipe for Oyster Stew

Oyster stew is a hearty, delicious and easy meal perfect for dreary winter days. Like fried chicken and BBQ, oyster stew recipes vary greatly by region.
