Clam Chowder

Is this cooler weather putting you in the mood for warm soup?

(okay. technically this photo is of potato chowder, because I made it for a party I hosted for 2 and 3 year olds... but I used this recipe, just omitting the clams and let me tell you, it is delicious either way.)

Ingredients:
  • 2 cans clams, minced
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 2 cups diced potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided in half
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 quart half and half
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1. Combine onions, potatoes and half the salt in a large pot. Drain juice from clams, and pour over vegetables. Fill the pot with water until everything is just barely covered. Simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a 3 quart saucepan. Add flour; blend and cook 1 minute. Add the half and half and stir until smooth and thick.

3. Pour white sauce over vegetables.  Add clams, the remaining salt, pepper, and sugar. heat thoroughly. It is especially good if you let it sit a few hours on warm heat.

Serves 6-8
