Directions:
Check the pint of oysters and liquor for shell fragments. Blend into a smooth paste the flour, salt, celery salt, pepper, and water. Stir flour mixture into oysters and their liquor. Simmer over very low heat until edges of oysters curl. Pour oysters into one quart or more of scalded milk. Do not boil! Use a heavy kettle and stir while milk is heating to prevent scorching. Remove from heat, add a couple Tbsp. of butter, cover, let stand awhile to enhance flavor.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Parsley or chives make a nice garnish. I recommend using AT LEAST 2 % milk; on the farm it was whole milk.
