 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2  cups          top milk -- * see note
    2      tablespoons   crackers -- finely crushed
    2      tablespoons   butter
      3/4  teaspoon      salt
    1      dash          pepper
    1      pint          oysters
                         parsley
                         green onion
 
 * top milk I think if I remember my teen years was the cream that rose
 to the top of the milk before milk was homogenized.
 
 Heat the milk and crumbs in a double boiler.  Add the juice from the
 oysters, the seasoning and the butter.  When the milk is hot and the
 butter melted, add the oysters.  Cook until the oysters are plump and
 the edges begin to curl.  Serve at one.  Sprinkle chopped chives or
 green onions and parsley.
