Christmas Oyster Soup

2 Carrots; medium peeled & grated in long, thin shreds
1/2 c Celery; finely diced
1/4 c Butter; melted
4 c Milk; or 1/2 milk, 1/2 cream
4 c Oysters salt and pepper to taste


Peel and grate in long thin shreds, the carrots and add finely diced celery. Melt butter in saucepan and add the vegetables. Stir. Cover and simmer over very low heat for 20 minutes, without browning the vegetables. Add milk (or use 1/2 milk, 1/2 cream); bring to a boil. Heat oysters in enamelled cast iron pan over medium heat; do not boil. Pour into milk and serve. Use salt and pepper to taste.

The soup should be served as soon as ready, otherwise it tend to curdle. The milk and vegetables can be be prepared ahead of time and the oysters heated and served at the last minute.
