Rich, buttery soup with pieces of artichoke heart and oyster. If you love oysters or artichokes you can add half-again as much of these ingredients. You can also use 1 pint each heavy cream and half-half for a less rich soup. This soup does not freeze well so don't cook more than you can eat within a few days!

I was not all that impressed with this receipe. Ther is no mention of rinsing the oysters to get rid of that grainy taste. There are no seasonings mentioned so if you don't add your own than bland city. I think the reciepe called for too much cream also and the cream tastes very 'raw' or uncooked. It seems it should be added sooner to give it time to blend with the veggies and oysters. I'm a huge oyster fan and this just didn't do it for me. Read More

This was very good but I used a pint of oysters and the the water the oysters came in and added the water from the can of artichokes. Adding these gives it more oyster and artichoke flavor. I also added basil bay leaf salt pepper and a little Cajun seasoning. It was better after adding these seasonings. Read More
