New England Clam Chowder #SundaySupper Soup Celebration

New England Clam Chowder

This week our Sunday Supper group is celebrating that wonderful Soul Warming, Belly Warming, Glasses Steaming, One Pot Recipe concoction better known as

SOUP!

I love soup of all kinds, so when Pam from The Meltaways suggested a soup theme I couldn’t wait to see all the great ideas! Thanks Pam!
One of my favorite soups is New England Clam Chowder. Truth be told, every time I make it I change it just a little depending on my mood. Sometimes I leave the bacon out. I hear you, I know who would leave bacon OUT? Add carrots, sure. Mussels? Why not? Anyway, as you can see it is an easily adaptable recipe but I always leave it as a white chowder version. Have fun with it and make it your own. Let me know how it turns out!

New England Clam Chowder

    Ingredients

  • 3 cups clam juice
  • 1 cup fish or chicken stock
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced (about 3 cups)
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cans chopped clams with juice
  • 2 cups half and half or (light version use 2 percent milk)
  • 1 cup potato flakes, divided
  • 4 strips cooked bacon, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley for garnish

Sauté celery and onions in oil over medium heat until soft but not mushy. Set aside.
Cook potatoes in clam juice and stock over medium heat until cooked about half way through. At that point, add the celery, onions and clams with juice.
Continue cooking until potatoes are soft not mushy. Remove from heat and add half and half and bacon.
Add 1/2 cup of potato flakes and gradually add remaining flakes until you reach desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste.

  11. I adore clam chowder, and yours looks so tempting. I’ve also never made my own, chiefly because I can’t think of a substitute for bacon in the dish. Any suggestions? :)

  25. Clam chowder has always been on of my favorite soups, but I have never made it. I’ve made plenty of other chowders, but for some reason clam chowder just intimidated me. Pretty sure I will be making this as soon as I get a free day.

    Clam chowder and oyster stew remind me of my childhood…those were two soups my mom always made. I wish the hubby would eat them…your chowder looks excellent! And I’d love a big bowl :)

    Looks like a nice and creamy clam chowder to me. It’s something I have yet to make. I like that you can add whatever potato flakes to get to your desired consistency. Some of the clam chowders I’ve had are too thick for me.
