Oysters: True or False?

Oysters should be eaten only in months with "r's" in them - September, October, etc... True or False?

The answer is: FALSE!

Oysters can be eaten 12 months a year. The notion that oysters should not be eaten in "r"-less months-that is, months that occur during warm weather-may have started in the days when oysters were shipped without adequate refrigeration and could spoil. But today all that has changed and we can enjoy oysters 12 months a year!
