Clam Chowder

It has been SO cold here the past two days! This clam chowder is sure to warm and satisfy you! I got this recipe from a lady that I used to babysit for. It is simple and SO delicious! It is especially good served in these yummy bread bowls.

I forgot to get a picture when we originally ate these, so this picture is after being nuked in the microwave the next day(not quite as pretty, but just as tasty!).

Clam Chowder

  • 2 (6 1/2 oz.) cans clams(chopped or minced, depending on the size of clam chunks you like)
  • 1 c. chopped celery
  • 1 c. chopped onions
  • 2 c. diced potatoes
  • 3/4 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 qt. half & half
  • 1 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. pepper

Directions: Drain clams, save juice. Combine vegetables, clam juice, and enough water to cover vegetables. Simmer till vegetables are soft. Add clams and cook 2 minutes. Melt butter, whisk in flour and cook to make a roux(2-3 minutes). Add half & half, salt and pepper. Cook till thick, then add to vegetable mixture. Serves ~8.
