Recipe by blondlady
"Wonderful main meal stew using 8-ounce container of oysters. Good served with toasted and buttered thick sliced bread and simple fruit, such as canned peaches. If stew is too thick, thin with a little more milk. If your oysters are large, they may be cut after cooking into smaller pieces."

clove garlic, minced

Simple & easy to make. Creamy, flavorful, quick. What more could you ask for? I didn't change a THING!
Instead of milk and half and half, I used almond milk and kefir. Also add fresh dill. Quite yummy for those looking for lactose free ingredients.
Wonderful! Easy to make, it took no time at all, was thick and creamy and yummy in my tummy.
Superb recipe1 I use half n half in lieu of milk and heavy cream in lieu of half n half. I also add to Blondlady's recipe, one pinch of cayenne and 3 pinches of old bay and lace well with Sherry. I even add some of the Sherry to the stew too!
My family loved this stew! Must admit I left out the milk used a qt of 1/2 &1/2 & used 2 containers of fresh oysters. And added a medium potato finely chopped and about a 1/4 of a small sweet onion to the celery mixture! I was really careful not to let this come to a boil as cream could curdle. This was a more expensive dinner than I usually make but when a girl wants oysters, then a girl gets oysters. also bought a $4 bouquet of flowers! It was a day to smile about! :)
This is my basic recipe, nothing more and nothing less, the way I make it for myself two times per year as a feel-good-food. My mama used to make it for me whenever I was sick in bed, so good with the memory. Perfect in the winter.
Excellent recipe. Haven't had it in years. I ate the entire batch (over a few days mind you). It brought back some great memories of my Mom.
I doubled this recipe and being from Maryland I had to add one tablespoon of Old Bay to the mix, everything else was kept the same. It was great and easy!
