This favorite chowder from colonial days is a white chowder made with milk or cream.

Ingredients

1/4
cup cut-up bacon or salt pork
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
2
cans (6.5 oz each) minced or whole clams*
1
medium potato, diced (1 cup)
1/2
teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
2
cups milk

Directions

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, cook bacon and onion over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp and onion is tender; drain off fat.
  • 2 Drain clams, reserving liquid. Add enough water, if necessary, to clam liquid to measure 1 cup.
  • 3 Stir clams, clam liquid, potato, salt and pepper into bacon and onion. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until potato is tender.
  • 4 Stir in milk. Heat, stirring occasionally, just until hot (do not boil or soup may curdle).
Tips  

1 pint shucked fresh clams with their liquid can be substituted for the canned clams. Chop clams and stir in with the potato in step 3.
