One of the things on my list is to eat or drink 10 new things.
Last night, without any effort on my part really, I was given the opportunity to do the first one: raw oysters. I may at some stage have eaten cooked oysters, though I can't remember doing so, but I know for sure I ha never done the raw slurp it down thing. Until yesterday.
Yes, I know this is a delicacy. They were even bluff oysters, which are famous in these parts. Uncooked, but for a squirt or two of lemon juice, just like the purists say we should do them. So I faced my fear of all things slimy, and slurped one down.
Have to admit, not wildly impressed. They taste ok, salty and much like the sea. But I am unconvinced by the slimy texture thing. Glad I did it, cos raw oysters are one of those things you just have to do. But don't think I'll be seeking them out again.
Still, 1 down, 9 to go. :)
