1 qt canned, minced clams with juice

3/4 qt water

10 oz bacon slices, diced

1 med white or yellow onion (as finely diced as you can)

about 4 oz of flour

1 lb potatoes, peeled and small dice

1 1/4 qt milk, hot

1/2 c heavy cream, hot

s & p to taste

 

drain clams. save juice. combine juice and water into a sauce pan. bring to boil then reduce heat to keep warm. in heavy sauce pot render bacon over med heat. remove and set aside with slotted spoon. add onions to pork fat. sweat them (tender with no color). add enough flour to make roux (about 4 min)...don't want it brown. slowly whisk in clam juice/water mixture. bring to boil, whisking constantly (want the liquid smooth). add potatoes. simmer until tender. stir in clams, hot milk&cream, and bacon... heat gently but do not boil..... season.

 

gotta stir very frequently.... easy to burn the bottom of soups... and that can quickly ruin the whole batch.

 

can serve in sourdough bread boules... sprinkle with chopped parsley if you like.

That said I never had bacon in my clam chowder!!!

Until tomorrow when I use this recipe!

Had lobster bisque last night at dinner. Would have preferred clam chowder. We have lots of places that have fresh clams and it is so much better than the canned stuff.

I generally like New England, but theres a restaurant in my city called The Crab Cooker, that makes the best Manhattan. I think it has a little cream in it, because its more of a pinkish color. Its amazing and beats any New England Ive ever had. They make great smoked albacore too. Getting hungry thinking about it.

I think manhattan has the better opportunity to be better. But NE is consistent. Wife and I go to this thing every year called night of a thousand candles at this huge garden/outside art exhibit at Christmas time. Christmas lights and candles everywhere. Anyway, they always have food to eat and one of them is a soup called inlet chowder. Extremely similar to Manhattan with the tomato base. But it is better than most NE style clam chowders Ive had. Havent had many Manhattan chowders so dont have a lot to go off of

Maybe 10 years ago I had lunch at a place on the wharf in Newport RI, cup of clam chowder and a lobster roll. Top 5 all time lunches.

The problem with Manhattan is its usually WAAAAy overpriced, pretentious and tends to be a little too "jewy" for my tastes.
