"One to one and one-half tablespoons of Snider's Catsup for each person to be served. Add the Catsup to the soup just before removing from stove or pour into soup after it is served.

We advise pouring Snider's Catsup directly on the oysters, and whether they are served on the half shell or bulk, use a spoon or an oyster fork.

One pint large oysters: one-half cup flour; one-half cup milk; one-half cup Snider's Tomato Catsup; one-half teaspoon salt. Mix thoroughly the flour, milk, Catsup and salt; dip oysters into mixture, then roll them in cracker crumbs. Fry in sweet, fresh lard, butter or olive oil until a dark brown. Serve very hot.

Snider's Catsup is popularly known as a perfect relish for roast beef, steaks, cutlets, fish, oysters and many other foods the good housewife is familiar with."
