Recipe 4 All: Clam Chowder ( Monterey ) Recipe

Clam Chowder ( Monterey )

Yield: 6 Servings
1  Carrot, diced (1)
1md Onion, diced (1½)
1  Potato, diced (2)
1  Stalk of celery, diced (2)
½lb Minced bacon (¾ lb.)
¼lb Margarine (I used butter, 1
3  Cloves fresh garlic, minced
½qt Clam juice (I used 3- 8 oz
cups Flour (2¼ c.)
2cups Milk (3 c.)
2cups Heavy whipping cream (3 c.)
2cups Half-and-half (3 c.)
½teaspoon Black pepper (1 tsp., DON'T
½lb Chopped clams (fresh, frozen
½teaspoon Clam base (optional,

(I made 1½ times this amount - see parenthesis for amt.)

Place vegetables, bacon and margarine in a 5 quart sauce pot. Saute over medium heat until vegetables are tender. Be careful not to brown or scorch.

When vegetables are tender, add flour to make a roux. Cook for two minutes, allowing flour to cook while stirring occasionally.

Add fresh garlic, black pepper, chopped clams and clam base. Cook over low-medium heat stirring occasionally to prevent chowder from scorching. Cook for two hours or until chowder is brought to desired thickness.

If a crockpot, or small steam kettle is available, it is recommended. Also, clam juice can be added to thin chowder down if it gets too thick.

Note: This soup is the BEST clam chowder I have ever tasted! It is thick and very rich and fattening! I didn't use the clam base since I don't even know what that is. Also, I didn't need to simmer it as long as suggested. I cooked it for about 1½ hours. The chowder needs to be stirred OFTEN, probably about every 5-10 minutes or so or it will stick to the bottom of the pot. Also, I one-and-one-halved times'd it, using about 3 lbs. of chopped clams instead of the recommended amount. I also served it with the little soup "clam" crackers. It made about 5 quarts this way.
