This New England classic is well-loved by our family.
"Excellent, this is going in my recipe notebook. Been looking for a good basic clam chowder recipe. I added bottled clam juice instead of the water and 1/2 cup finely chopped celery and omitted the Worcestershire sauce ( I do not like) and substituted fresh nutmeg. Will definitely make again."
Drain clams; reserving liquid. Add enough water to reserved liquid to measure 2 cups liquid; set aside.
In a large saucepan, fry salt pork or bacon until crisp; remove bits of pork or bacon and set aside. Add reserved liquid, potatoes, and onion to fat in saucepan. Cook, covered, about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Stir in clams, 2 cups of the milk and the light cream. Stir remaining 1/2 cup milk into flour; stir into chowder. Cook and stir until bubbly. Cook 1 minute more. Add Worcestershire sauce, 3/4 teaspoon salt and dash pepper. Sprinkle pork or bacon atop.
Bunn_1 3m agoWhile this is a good potato soup, it is not what I think of when I think of clam chowder
Wickedjim 4m agoAs a New Englander from Massachusetts though i believe all new England folk would agree. NEVER Bastardize Clam Chowder with celery !!!!! it didnt work for Bobby Flay in his Throwdown in Maine, because its wrong! if you do then please call it something else. dont tarnish The Cape !
tlbarker72 11m agoI tried this the other night and I is a simple but delicious recipe. I saut?ed the onion with some diced celery before adding the rest of the ingredients. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. I topped it with just a dab of butter and lots of cracked black pepper. Amazing.
laurel_fedor_1 1y agoVery tasty, easy, and my husband loved it. I would reduce the amount of milk and add a bit of cornstarch next time to make it a thicker consistency. I could probably whip this up again in ten minutes (not including boil time).

flylooper 3y agoPretty basic but very good recipe. I added celery, finely chopped red and green bell pepper and a couple of cloves of garlic. For thickener, I added some mashed potato powder I had laying around. Came out great.
Audreyjones25 3y agoI also added celery, garlic, old bay seasoning and dill to the soup but since I made just a bit more i decided to add a can of tuna! Superb!
