Spring Issue 2014

Spring is here – and with our Maine rivers finally cleared of ice the Oyster Season is upon us. In this “Maine Oyster Issue” we explore the history and harvest of our two famous oysters – the Eastern Oyster and even rarer European Oyster, the Maine “Belon”. Check out the Browne Trading “Maine Oyster Guide” of some of our favorite local growers, along with pictorials and info on how to shuck and care for your oysters once you get them home. Our Friend and Acclaimed Cookbook Author James Peterson shares a pictorial on his easy recipe for Oyster Stew, along with a wonderful pairing of fresh Sea Urchin Roe (uni) with raw and cooked oysters.
