"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

This recipe came out of Mom's (Irene) recipe file. It is written in Grandma Winnie Mercer's hand writing. We do not know of a Aunt Susan. So it could of been a recipe of someone's Aunt that Grandma Winnie knew. Or it could just be the name of the recipe. Don't think we'll ever know the story on this one. Other than Aunt Susan is a mystery and there is no Aunt Susan in our family.
