Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This dish was a tradition in the Welch, Davis, Guckert, Ryan households. It was served on Christmas Eve afternoon for lunch or before the main meal on Christmas Eve. If you like oysters and can get them "fresh from the water", you'll savor this stew (but it's really soup).
