Oyster Stew

Oyster Stew

Stir this soup often as it cooks to avoid bringing it to a boil or it may break (appear curdled). If shucking your own oysters, you'll need about 24 to 30 for one pint.

Ingredients

  • 1 bacon slice, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine

Preparation

Cook bacon in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings in pan; set bacon aside. Add onion, celery, and green onions to drippings in pan; cook over medium heat 7 minutes or until celery is tender, stirring frequently. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
