New England Clam Chowder

Postby JEBar » Tue Oct 09, 2018 8:54 pm

several years ago while we were in Maine we had some of the best and the very worst New England Clam Chowder that we have ever tasted .... from that we began a process which now allows us to fix some truly outstanding clam chowder .... I guess I do need to clarify one minor point, the homemade part is absolutely true in that we make it at home and while in our home away from home .... as some folks read on they may not believe that "outstanding" may have been a bit of an exaggeration but I assure you that it is very accurate .... with the exception of some milk, all of the ingredients are shown in the first picture .... to prepare it, drain the cans of diced potatoes, shrimp, and mushrooms .... empty all cans into a pot and add enough milk to get the consistency you like .... my wife uses about one soup can and a half .... cook over low heat until thoroughly warm

a couple of notes :

shrimp and mushrooms aren't commonly found in New England Clam Chowder but we like them .... they could easily be left our for anyone who doesn't

the real beauty of this recipe is the cans components can be bought at any time and kept until you want them .... great for traveling, doesn't take long to put on the table

leftover can be kept in the frig for several days, wouldn't recommend freezing

I love clam chowder. Maybe I'll try this on my fall camping trip.

I know that seeing a recipe that calls for combining several cans of ingredients may sound strange but with this, it really works well .... we do pretty much stick with Campbell's soup .... as noted, its really nice to be able to store everything and keep it on hand .... hope you'll give it a try and post your reaction

I make a similar combination of canned clam chowder and canned minced clams, which work together to make a great chowder. Thanks for sharing your blend.

Being from the PNW originally I love Clam Chowder. Everytime I go to Washington to see my sister there is a place called Wallys in Des Moines, Wash that has the best I have ever had. He serves mainly fish and prawns there and does one heck of a business. I look forward to going there when I go.
