Clam Chowder, YUM!

Clam Chowder

So good and so easy to make…

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 4 medium size potatoes, chopped
  • 2 – 8 oz. bottles of clam juice
  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 2 – 10 oz. cans of clams
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp of dried thyme
  • S&P to taste

In large pot, saute onion and celery in olive oil ( I use leftover bacon grease and olive oil) add potatoes and saute for 2 or 3 minutes more.  Add clam juice and let simmer (covered) for 7 – 10 minutes.  Add milk, clams, bay leaves, and thyme and turn heat down to a very low simmer for about 15 minutes.  S&P to taste.  (If I want to make the chowder a little thicker I’ll add a Tbsp of masa corn flour when I add the milk and stir well)

I love that this big pot of soup cost me about $12.00 and it makes 5 large servings.  Or more like 1 dinner and 2 lunches for the Z Man and me.  Because it’s SOOOOO good!!!

Enjoy!
