Oyster and Brie Champagne Soup Recipe:
Purchasing Oysters: When choosing oysters at the market, make sure that they be fresh. If one is open (which it shouldn’t be) it should snap shut emphatically once tapped. If an oyster does not close immediately, do not buy or use it. Oysters should feel heavy and full in your hand. Oysters lose moisture once they are removed from the sea. The heaviness suggests that they are freshly harvested.
Storing Fresh Oysters: Keep the unopened oysters cold but do not store in water! Remember, oysters are alive and need to breathe, so never seal them tightly in a plastic bag. Never immerse live oysters in fresh water or melted ice – it will kill them.
