Description

Introducing the Mignonette Trilogy. This batch of special edition mignonettes is straight out of the Barnegat Oyster Kitchen.

 Includes
-one 1.75 oz jar of Classic Mignonette
-one 1.75 oz jar of Blue Bay Mignonette
-one 1.75 oz jar of Cinnamon Cosmo Mignonette

 

'Mignonette' comes from the French word for ‚Äúdelicate‚ÄĚ, and for this trinity, we took delicate to the extreme. Start off with the Classic, a baseline for which to measure all other migns. Red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, and shallots. Simple and sweet.

Next, things get spicy with the Blue Bay Mignonette. Layered on top of the Classic‚Äôs base, BB features Jersey blueberries, coriander, habanero, jalape√Īos, basil, and local honey. The heat from the peppers is mellowed out by the acidity of the vinegar, cooling down before liftoff. Jersey Heat meets Jersey Sweet.

We close things down with an after-dinner drink: the Cinnamon Cosmo. Try the criminally underused gastronomic entity known as the dessert oyster, with a hint of Jersey Cranberries, Lime, Brown Sugar, and Ginger on top of the Classic base.

Three unique pairings, three diverse culinary experiences. Which will you choose first?

FAQs

How long can my oysters last? 

  • Most people find it surprising, but oysters have a pretty good shelf life. They‚Äôre simple organisms. It doesn‚Äôt take much to send them into hibernation mode. Store them in a fridge, cup side down, with a wet paper towel over them. They‚Äôll be safe to eat for at least a week. You‚Äôll know they‚Äôre dead if they open up.¬†

Where did my oysters come from?

  • Your package should have arrived with some printed literature naming the oyster variety. Explore this map for a general area of where each oyster is grown. You‚Äôll notice the saltier oysters are grown closer to the ocean, while the sweeter ones are grown near rivers and creeks.¬†

How do I know if the oysters are safe to eat? 

  • Our packaging practices have been verified safe by a third party. We go an extra step to ensure safety. Please refer to the little tab (Time Temperature Indicator) that‚Äôs on the inside of your package‚Äôs cooler. While most UPS packages arrive on time, sometimes there‚Äôs mistakes. If the tab says there was a temperature breach then just shoot us an email and we will find a way to correct it. For risks associated with eating raw oysters, please visit the FDA‚Äôs website on Advice about Eating Fish.¬†

Can I buy oysters in person?

  • Yes. It‚Äôs always best to order ahead or call ahead to ensure we have what you‚Äôre looking for. Our # is 609-450-9005 and our address is 483 E Bay Avenue in Barnegat Township.

Is it true that oysters should only be eaten in months that have an ‚ÄúR‚ÄĚ?

  • This is old news. This saying was coined prior to the luxury of mechanical refrigeration.¬†
