Bad oysters??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Now this didn't happen to me. But a neighbor had bought a can of oysters, with no ex. date on them. When she bought them, and how long she had them, i do not know. When she opened them, they were green in color. She took no chances, and tossed them out. She was wondering if they had gone bad.

Yours,

Malecook. ps, i buy fresh thing's, not in a can.

Malecook, you have posted this question in the Welcome Forum where we introduce ourselves.

I'm going to move it to Food and Cooking Questions and Discussions, where it'll get a proper answer.

They're all like that. Green/Brown. Those canned smoked oysters are awesome on a saltine. :D

Right, kind of depends on what they were in the first place.... Have an idea of the brand and type?

Kuan, I agree with you smoked clams and oysters are something I grew up with and still have fond memories of.....but there are cans of shelf staple oysters in liquid....that are a totally different matter.
oysters can be green/brown, but when in doubt, even the slightest doubt...throw them out. It's not worth hugging procelin or worse for a couple of bucks of canned bad food.

I have never tried those oysters in a can, I could not bring myself to it. I do love smoked oysters. I did a cool recipe with them once. Made a dressing of Virginia Ham and smoked oysters and stuffed a Flank Rouilade with it. Seared and roasted it and served it in Tournedo size madalions with Red wine Deglazed Pan Jus.
