Wild Thirty-Ones: Oyster of the Week - February 10, 2014

Lately, there has been a lot of excitement at Pangea about the new oysters coming into our shop. This week, we have another addition!

Introducing the Wild Thirty-Ones from Barnstable Harbor, Massachusetts

Don't they just look stunning? And I promise, they taste just as amazing.

Barnstable Harbor is known for producing some of the Atlantic's best oysters like our Thatch Islands, and the Wild Thirty-Ones are no exception. These wild oysters are pretty special not only in look and flavor, but also in how they are harvested: they are hand-picked at low tide and exclusively harvested by a local Native American tribe. Their shells have deep green hues that reflect the ocean bottom they have been growing on.

When it comes to taste, the best word to describe them would be dynamic. The oysters have deep cups allowing for plump meats that are sweet and briny. And after you swallow the oyster, you are left with a nice ocean finish.

These oysters are a seasonal addition, so make sure to get them while they are here! For full Oysterology details, click here.
