There are several ways to stew oysters. Two recipes are given below.




  1. Shuck the oysters, saving any liquid in the oyster.
  2. Put your oysters with all their liquid into a saucepan; add the butter, salt, black pepper, mace, and bay leaves.
  3. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cream and shake all well together while heating through.
  4. Pour onto a plate or platter, grating a little fresh nutmeg on each oyster as it lies in the sauce.
