  • 2 quarts oysters
  • 6 raw egg yolks
  • cup butter
  • cup sugar
  • cup vinegar
  • cup made mustard, prepared with vinegar
  • 1 level tablespoon salt
  • 1 level tablespoon pepper

  • How To Cook:
    1. Carefully remove all particles of shell from the oysters, and strain their liquor.

    2. Put the oysters and liquor together in a saucepan, and place them over a fire to boil.

    3. Mix in another saucepan the yolks of eggs, butter, sugar, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper; stir the ingredients together over the fire until the egg yolks begin to thicken.

    4. Then at once remove them from the fire, and continue to stir them for two minutes; when the oysters begin to boil take them up and drain off the liquor.

    5. Thoroughly wash and dry four heads of lettuce, and tear them in small pieces; or use instead of the lettuce as much tender celery, carefully cleaned and chopped, as will equal the oysters in quantity.

    6. When the oysters are cold chop them a little, but do not cut them in very small bits.

    7. Add to them the dressing made above (a cream dressing) and the lettuce or celery.

        The salad should be used soon after it is made.
