I'm hosting a Christmas Eve afternoon get together of oysters and champagne. Some of my friends do not eat raw oysters so I am planning on preparing some by grilling and some Rockefeller.
My question is how far in advance could I shuck the oysters that I am going to cook? Could I do it the night before and simply put the shucked oysters and their liquor in a tupperware container? Of course, I would need to save one half of each shell in a separate container.
