Vintage 1950s Food

My aunt lived in Manhattan, N.Y. Every month my mother would ship off  my brother and me to visit her for the weekend.  When Saturday rolled rounded, we walked with her to the fresh fish market and she bought fresh oysters for this oyster stew.  Ah...memories!

Oyster Stew

1/4 cup butter or margarine                   1-quart raw oysters or 2 pkg.
Dash of pepper                                              frozen oysters
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce         1-1/2 quarts milk
Dash paprika                                         1-1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt butter in a deep pan. Add Worcestershire sauce and paprika, stir until smooth. Add oysters and oyster liquid, cook over low heat until edges of oysters curl.  Add milk, salt, and pepper, heat thoroughly over low heat but do not boil. Makes 6 servings
