       1 c  Milk
       1 c  Light cream
       1 pt Shucked oysters
            -(do not drain)
       2 tb Butter or margarine
     1/4 ts Salt
     1/4 ts Celery salt
       1 pn Pepper
       1 pn Paprika
  
   HEAT 4 SOUP BOWLS. Scald the milk and cream in a large heavy saucepan over
   moderately high heat. Drain the oyster liquor into a separate saucepan and
   bring to a boil. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the hot liquor into a third sauce-
   pan, add the oysters and butter, and heat, uncovered, over moderate heat,
   swirling the oysters around 3 to 4 minutes until their edges just begin to
   ruffle. Add the oysters at once to the hot milk mixture, mix in the hot
   oyster liquor, salt, celery salt, pepper and paprika. Ladle into the heated
   bowls and serve piping hot with oyster crackers.
   
   This is based on the oyster stew at New York’s famous Grand Central Oyster
   Bar.
