1/2 lb bacon

1 large onion chopped

2 ribs celery peeled and

1 diced

5 small can minced clams or

1 large can (about 51-oz)

2 teaspoon seafood Chesapeake brand

1 bay-style seafood

1 seasoning

1 quart (4 cup) half and half

1 divided

2 tablespoon flour



The day before you wish to serve the soup, fry the bacon until crisp

and remove.

In bacon drippings, saute onion, celery with leaves and

potatoes for 10-15 minutes at medium heat.

Add the minced clams, not clam soup but clams, with their juice.

Crumble the bacon and add.

Cover soup and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, for

several hours – up to five hours won’t hurt.

Cool down and place in refrigerator at night.

On the day of serving, skim grease off top.

Transfer soup to larger pot. Heat soup until bubbling and add the

seafood seasoning.

Mix 2 cups of the half and half with the flour.

Add to the chowder and stir until it bubbles again.

Mix in remaining half and half and simmer, stirring constantly, until soup is desired


Serve hot with garlic bread and a green salad.


All the best, Good Food makes For Better Decisions.
