A thought from John James Audubon...

"A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children."

Oysters, delicious and sustainable!

Sparked by an entry on Green Options, I'm motivated to share this posting on Eat. Drink. Better. about Oysters. Oysters are one of the great gifts of nature. Hemingway summed it up well.


Ernest Hemingway in “A Moveable Feast“ wrote:


As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to feel happy, and to make plans.
