Top-ranked recipe named "New England Clam Chowder"
Great taste for a standard soup
"This is a good jumping off starter. I used 2 cups half n half, smoked bacon, 5 cans of 6.5 oz clams (the only size my stores stock), and a bottle of clam juice as well as enough water to make the initial 3 cups of liquid.
We omitted the flour. Yummmm ooo"- Craftyrn
Drain clams and reserve liquid. Add enough water to clam juice to make 3 cups. Put in large soup pot.
Fry bacon in a small skillet. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.
Save some bacon grease and fry onions.
Peel and dice raw potatoes add them to the pot with the clam juice. Add salt, pepper, and onions.
Simmer until potatoes are tender.
Add clams, cream, milk, butter and bacon, salt, pepper, dill weed.

morrisa736 1 month agoAmazing soup. I read reviews and picked a few things I liked from them. I used 4 lbs fresh clams, 2 cups of the clam juice, 2 cups heavy cream, 1/2 lb bacon and I also added a dash of old bay and some fresh parsley as well as a tbsp of minced garlic. I will be making this again. Thank you for the recipe!
Geerm 6 months agoVery tasty. I used 3 cups of clam juice instead of water. Also went with more bacon and used 2 cups of cream instead of using milk. Made a chowder that was nice and rich. Good recipe.
