Creamy Oyster Soup

Submitted by: SANDSTRA

Introduction

This is a creamy and delicious soup that I make whenever we buy a bushel of sweet Apalachicola oysters. If you can't find fresh oysters in your store, frozen or canned works well in soups. Also a good base for any kind of "cream of" soup. This is a creamy and delicious soup that I make whenever we buy a bushel of sweet Apalachicola oysters.
