I don't know why but the shells were really brittle. Not exactly sure where these oysters were from but were they from slightly more acidic water?
I still can't shuck them from the hinge, they just don't want to open that way. So I shuck them by piercing the wider end at a weak spot. Anyone got tips for shucking from the hinge end?

They weren't bad, but not as rich as I hoped. I don't think they were very fresh.
