NEW ENGLAND CLAM CHOWDER INSTRUCTIONS
In a 3 qt. pot, and on medium heat, start by cooking the bacon to render the fat, and use the bacon for sandwiches and or garnish. You may need to cut the bacon in ½ to fit in your pot.
While the bacon is cooking you can prep by peeling and cutting the Potato, place the potato in a bowl of water until you are ready to use them.
Prep by cutting the Onion, and Celery.
Add Butter, Onion, Celery, and Thyme to the bacon fat, and on medium heat, sweat until the onions start to turn clear.
Add Flour to Make a Roux, and cook for about a minute, you do not want to cook too long and darken the Roux.
Slowly add Clam Juice and mix with a wire whisk as you add the juice.
Add Clams and Potatoes, and cook on low heat for 10 minutes. After 5 minutes, If you need to make the soup thicker, make a slurry with Flour and Clam Juice and slowly add it to the soup, and watch as it thickens. (*After adding Flour, you will need to cook out the flour tastes for at least 10-15 minutes).
If soup gets too thick you can always add some Clam Juice.
Right before serving temper in the Heavy Cream by slowly adding it to the hot soup.
Add some Fresh Parsley
You are done... Nice Job : )
