Today's Recipe:

Christmas Oyster Soup (soupe Aux Huitres De Noel)

2 Carrots; medium-peeled & grated in long,-thin shreds
1/2 c Celery; finely diced
1/4 c Butter; melted
4 c Milk; or 1/2 milk, 1/2 cream
4 c Oysters
salt and pepper to taste

Peel and grate in long thin shreds, the carrots and add finely diced celery. Melt butter in saucepan and add the vegetables. Stir. Cover
and simmer over very low heat for 20 minutes, withoutbrowning the
vegetables. Add milk (or use 1/2 milk, 1/2 cream); bring to a boil. Heat oysters in enameled cast iron pan over medium heat; do not boil. Pour into milk and serve. Use salt and pepper to taste.

The soup should be served as soon as ready, otherwise it tends to curdle. The milk and vegetables can be be prepared ahead of time and the oysters heated and served at the last minute.

To quote Mme. Benoit, "This traditional Quebec dish is still very much alive. My grandmother's recipe is, as far as I am concerned, the best there is." Note: from Anne - it seems as oysters were used at Christmas. My maternal grandmother from the American Midwest had a similar Christmas oyster dish although hers included corn.
