The Calm Cove oysters are a thick shelled, beach-grown oyster from southern Hood Canal, grown near the mouth of the Skokomish River. Calm Cove’s are wild oysters that reproduce and grow entirely on their own. Certified shellfish farms pay the state for the right to harvest from specific certified leases. The product is then brought to their facility and graded and cleaned as they would their own product. They are crunchy, slightly salty and sweet, with a fruity finish.
For longest shelf life, live oysters should be stored in a cold (35-40F, 1-4C), dark place and not disturbed. The box they arrive in should be drained of standing water by making holes in the bottom, or they can be transferred to a similar type of storage container, and then a damp towel should be placed on top of the oysters to keep them moist. Never let them sit in water.
