Sister Point Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics
Sister Point Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from one of the southern Hood Canal oyster appellations in Washington State’s Puget Sound. They are raised by the bag to beach method which combines two oyster farming methods. rack & bag oysters are taken from their pampered environment and put into the beach cultured environment during their last 6 months before harvesting. This allows them to “toughen up” a bit, giving them stronger, less brittle shells and firmer meats.
