Every few months my husband and I enjoy treating ourselves to a homemade oyster dinner. Most of the time we bake them in a casserole-style recipe as we don’t enjoy just plain steamed oysters.
Oysters should be purchased fresh and then placed into the refrigerator and consumed as soon as possible. Some people say they can last up to 2 weeks refrigerated, but I say that is too long. I believe you should consume them within 3-4 days after purchasing them.
