    Time plan tip: Make this recipe 15 minutes before serving. Buying and storing oysters: To make sure the oysters are as fresh as possible for the big day, buy them on Christmas Eve and transport them home in a chiller bag. Keep the oysters in the tray they're in and store, covered with plastic wrap, in the fridge.
