Oyster Soup No. 1


  • 2 quarts of oysters
  • 1 quart of milk
  • 2 tablespoonfuls of butter
  • 1 teacupful of hot water
  • pepper
  • salt


Strain all the liquor from the oysters; add the water, and heat. When near the boil, add the seasoning, then the oysters. Cook about five minutes from the time they begin to simmer, until they "ruffle." Stir in the butter, cook one minute, and pour into the tureen. Stir in the boiling milk and send to table. Some prefer all water in place of milk.
