1 pint ketchup
½ cup prepared horseradish
¼ cup Worcestershire
2 lemons, juiced
¼ cup Dijon mustard
1 tsp ground black pepper
Kosher salt to taste
2 shallots, minced
1 pint Red Wine Vinegar (better is better here)
1 tbsp ground black pepper
Spray them down with the hose!
Store in a cooler with a little loose ice and prop the lid open so the oysters can breathe. They are live animals
If you are feeling fancy, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. If not, skip to number three
Remove saltines from sleeves, place on baking tray, then brush each cracker with melted butter and sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning, then bake until golden brown delicious
If not feeling it, place a few sleeves of saltines on table.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and adjust to your personal taste.
