Print this Recipe    NEW ENGLAND CLAM & CORN CHOWDER

INGREDIENTS

4-5 dozen live Manila clams (easy to get in Wash. state)
3 onions
1/2 lb salt pork (bacon is ok in a pinch)
1 cup whipping cream
1 bunch leeks
3 stalks celery
2 young carrots
3 large potatoes
1 cup fresh or canned corn kernels
handful of fresh parsley
pinch of thyme
2 bay leaves
pinch of nutmeg
flour
butter
salt
pepper
Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco

PROCEDURE

Cut salt pork into 1/2 inch dice. Cut onions into 1/4 inch dice.
Brown pork slowly in a cast-iron skillet. Add onions and cook until
golden. Wash clams, discarding any that are broken or gaping. Heat them
slowly in a pan until they open. Discard any that don't open. Save
juice, after straining to remove any sand. Chop half of the clams
coarsely, and leave the other half whole.

Put pork, onions, clam juice and 1 quart boiling water into a big
pot. Add leeks (chopped finely), celery (finely minced), the carrots
(diced), the corn, the parsley (chopped), the thyme and bay leaves, 1 tsp
salt, 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, and a dash of nutmeg. Let
come to a vigorous boil.

Reduce to a simmer, and add 1 cup scalded whipping cream and the
potatoes, diced small. Make a roux by browning 2 tbsp flour in the same
amount of butter; make it creamy and smooth by adding broth from the
chowder pot. Put all the clams into the pot. Simmer slowly, stirring
often, until potatoes are just tender. Stir in the roux. Add 1 tbsp
Worcestershire sauce and a dash of Tabasco. Serve sizzling hot!
