Fresh Eating Oysters

Did you know? The humble oysters blood has no apparent colour. It also has kidneys and a beating heart. They are hermaphrodites, meaning that in their early years they are male, but then develop into females that produce eggs. Once the eggs are fertilised the oyster incubates them for up to 10 days before expelling them into the open waters. How many eggs can a female oyster make? Well, they can produce going on for a million of those little suckers. The kind of oysters that produce pearls are not the same as the ones which you would consume. With these type of oyster, the pearl begins as an irritant like a piece of sand. This is then coated with a solution made up of calcium & protein called nacre, this is also known by a more popular name ‘Mother of Pear’. This process is repeated many times eventually producing a pearl.

Are oysters good for you? Fresh Oysters are a really good source of vitamins such as A, B1, B2, B3, C &D. They also contain healthy amounts of other minerals such as phosphorus, manganese, zinc, calcium, magnesium, iodine, copper & iron. The oyster has been in existence for upwards of 180 million years and in that time has never evolved, well if your perfect, why change! In times past the oyster shell was often used for various things. For instance, the Greeks used the shells as ballots to vote with. The word ‘ostracise’ is derived from the Astrakeon Greek for oyster shell, this is because Athenian Greeks used the shells to vote to banish people that were unpopular.
