3 Tablespoon(T)  butter
4 Ounce(oz)  salt pork, diced

Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until just tender. Open the oysters into a sieve over a bowl. Melt a little butter and fry the diced salt pork over a gentle heat just until tender. Bring the milk to a boil with a bouquet garni, turn off the heat and infuse for a few minutes. Peel the cooked potatoes and mash in a saucepan with the milk. Add the pork as soon as it is tender, and mash. Bring to a boil, strirring all the time. Add the oysters and their liquid and simmer for a few minutes. Adjust seasoning and stir in the remaining butter. Serve at once, sprinkled with chopped parsley.
