Preparation

Wash each oyster thoroughly with fresh cold water and clean brush. Scrub at the narrow hinge where sediments are often trapped. Wear a glove, place oyster on a dish towel rounded side down and hold in place with one hand. Insert knife at hinge and with gentle force, press down diagonally and twist knife slightly to pry open shell.The oyster should now be completely detached, prepared for cooking or ready to be eaten raw.

Storage

Oysters can be stored at 33 to 40 degrees damp cold. Cover them with damp paper towels in the back of the refrigerator, or on ice in a closed cooler allowing for drainage of melt-water. Do not store oysters in a sealed plastic bag or other airtight container and do not allow them to be stored where they could freeze, or where temperatures reach over 40 F.
