New England Style Clam Chowder

Help blog world! Special hello to my new followers as well! The more of you to please the more gratifying it is for me. Came across some good recipes recently and tested one out tonight. It was successful and so I can’t wait to tell you about it. But first, I’m a little bit behind, so many things going on, so many things to share with you. So here is another soup that I made up last week.

Mmmmm yum! My mom used to make this growing up and it was always my favorite soup. Clams potatoes and bacon! Perfect heaven. Quite a simple recipe, quick and easy! Enjoy

New England Style Clam Chowder

Ingredients:
4 cans whole baby clams
1 small jar clam juice , just cuz I like it like that
8 slices of bacon, chopped and cooked, or more if you choose! Bad Girl!
5 cups diced potatoes
1 cup chopped onion
5 cups 2% milk
2 cups whole milk or cream if you want it thicker, I leaned on the healthier side
5-6 tbsp flour
salt and pepper

Directions:
Drain clams and reserve liquid, including the jar of juice, you should have 5 cups
In a stock pot add the clam juice, potatoes and onions
Cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender
Stir in clams, 4 cups of the 2% milk, and the whole milk
Combine remaining 2% milk and flour, stir into chowder
Season with salt and pepper
Cook until thick

This was loaded up with clams and potatoes and… yes dare I say it…. Bacon!! Make it your own, adjust it to your liking. After all, that’s what cooking is all about.
