CLAM CHOWDER, NEW ENGLAND 2

This favorite chowder from colonial days is a white chowder made with milk or cream.
Prep: 10 min - Cook: 25 min
4 Servings

 

Ingredients
• 1/4 cup cut-up bacon or salt pork
• 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
• 2 cans (6.5 oz each) minced or whole clams*
• 1 medium potato, diced (1 cup)
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• Dash of pepper
• 2 cups milk
 

Directions
1.
In 2-quart saucepan, cook bacon and onion over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp and onion is tender; drain off fat.

2. Drain clams, reserving liquid. Add enough water, if necessary, to clam liquid to measure 1 cup.

3. Stir clams, clam liquid, potato, salt and pepper into bacon and onion. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until potato is tender.

4. Stir in milk. Heat, stirring occasionally, just until hot (do not boil or soup may curdle).

*1 pint shucked fresh clams with their liquid can be substituted for the canned clams. Chop clams and stir in with the potato in Step 3.
