Oyster of the Week - January 20, 2014

The Pangea Pearls are here!

Finally, an oyster named after Pangea that we are proud to put our name behind. Many of our customers have been asking for more information about these said "Pearls," and we are so excited to feature them this week!

Grown on the Standish Shore Oyster Farm, the Pangea Pearls are beautiful petite oysters with deep cups. They are tumbled often to mimic the shape of the Kumamoto. The tumbling also promotes a strong shell, which is further pronounced by an elegant fluted exterior (see photos above).

Since the Pearls are also grown in Duxbury Bay, Massachusetts, they have a similar Duxbury flavor as our Standish Shore Selects - sweet and buttery with a clean salty finish. Yet, the Pearls taste more delicate, potentially due to its size, and surprises you with a crisp, succinct flavor. Even though they are smaller than the typical oyster, we were pleasantly surprised by the meat content that the deep cups were holding.

These oysters will present beautifully on ice or even in its packaging! Every order of Pangea Pearls are hand-packed in wooden boxes with the utmost care.

We are so excited to make these available, and we hope you love them as much as we do. At this time, there are only limited amounts available, so make sure to call the shop sooner rather than later.
