May, June, July & August are Bad!



I just learned today that one should only buy seafood in months
that have "R's" in them. Let me depict it here for you:

That's an old guideline. Set before the advent of refrigeration. Nowadays you can get seafood all year round.

But there is a reason not to buy oysters in the summer months. Oysters spawn in the warmer months and the meat is a bit more fatty and not as tasty. But totally fine, health-wise.

True, clams are never as good as in months that actually have an R in them ...

Earl is right. And look at Maryland Blue crabs?

Summer is their time.

I'd heard that before too, but I'll eat seafood whenever I can get it!

Never ever ever ever purchase the crawfish etouffee from the rib shack at the state fair.

Yes it is available.

Oh.. and never use a port o john in a month with "gust" in it.
