New England Clam Chowder


by Jenny Harper

I love soup. A lot. On a cold winter day, there's nothing like a bowl of hot, savory soup to satisfy my hunger and warm me through and through. And if the soup is easy to make, I'm even happier. Make a double batch and freeze individual servings so you can have some ready any time you need it.

New England Clam Chowder
Makes 4 servings

4 slices bacon, chopped
1 pound (about 3 medium) potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1/4 cup chopped carrot
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
2 cans (12 fluid ounces each) Evaporated Milk
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cans (6.5 ounces each) chopped or minced clams, undrained
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

COOK bacon in medium saucepan until crisp; drain. Reserve 2 tablespoons bacon fat. Return reserved bacon fat to saucepan. Add potatoes, carrot, onion and celery. Cook, stirring frequently for 6 to 7 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

COMBINE evaporated milk and flour in small bowl until blended; add to potato mixture. Stir in clams with juice, salt, bacon, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring frequently, for 15 to 20 minutes or until creamy and slightly thick.
