This soup will definitely stick to your ribs and serves as a perfect first course or entree. Creamy rich with a little peppery heat, and simply loaded with clams; it tastes great in a bread bowl!
Note: Shrimp base is a thick, paste-like bouillon that can be found in the supermarket next to the bouillon and granules. If you can't find it, use chicken soup base OR 2 tsp. chicken bouillon granules.
Over medium heat, cook down onions, carrots, parsley and bacon for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, steam potatoes for about 10 minutes, or until slightly tender.
Drain clams and reserve 1 cup clam juice. Set aside.
Add cayenne pepper, white pepper, black pepper and salt to the onion-vegetable mixture. Add heavy whipping cream, milk, reserved clam juice, and shrimp base and allow to come to boil.
In a smaller pot, melt butter and slowly whisk in flour to form roux. Once vegetable mixture is boiling, add roux and thouroughly stir.
Turn off heat and add clams. Add potatoes. Serve.
