Oyster Lovers Try this Oyster App...

Oyster lovers we have an app for you, and when we say app we don't mean appetizer.

Just so you don't think that we are shucking and jiving when we sell some of our small source oysters, we want to share this app with you. To test it out, we searched many of the oysters we have had here. The app gives you tasty tidbits of over 200 oysters along with notes about location, size, taste, salinity and some interesting other splashes of information. You can also save your preferences of oysters that you have tried.

As a restaurant owner and purveyor of oysters, I think it is important to provide proof to dispel the old wives' tale that you should only eat oysters in months that have an "R" in them. This app does that. As we head into summer, it is good to know what oysters you can eat in an "R"less month. What could be better on a hot summer's day than to toss back a nice, light, ice-cold oyster splashed with some tart and tangy mignonette sauce?

One other interesting piece of information for you: Unlike the rest of the seafood industry, oyster regulations are extremely strict. Because of past food-borne illnesses spread by oysters, every case that we buy is required by law to carry a tag with its date and origin. These laws were passed to be able to quickly track down suspect cases of oysters. When we have our health inspections, we are regularly asked to provide proof of origin.

When you are searching for the app, all you have to type in is Oysterpedia. Best of all, it's free!  Here is a review of the app.
