How to Make Clam chowder
- In a stock pot combine your butter, flour and milk. Continue to cook while whisking it until it thickens. It does take a little longer than I had expected.
- Once it has thickened add your vegetables. Drain your clams (save the juice) and add only the clams to your soup mixture. I then salt & pepper it to taste. I have also added other seasonings at times to my choice.
- Cook on medium (not boiling as it will scorch)for approx. 30 min. until potatoes are tender. If you find it is too thick for your liking, add the clam juice to thin it out.
