Fresh Gulf oysters are an Alabama delicacy, and we enjoy them all year round.
When it comes to cooking them in your own kitchen, though—well, it can be a lot of effort. Shucking, cleaning, and the rest of the process can be a chore for some folks.
Our friends at The Oyster Bed want to help with that.
This handy new product is more than just a nice serving dish—it’s safe for use on grills and in ovens, all without the weight of cast iron. (It’s easy to clean, too!)
Whether you’re buying one or two for yourself or gifting them to the foodie friends in your life this holiday season, there’s one more thing you’ll need to utilize your Oyster Bed to its highest potential: recipes, of course.
Here are a few recipe videos featuring The Oyster Bed so you can get a good idea of the product itself and what you can use it for.
