Soup Season

November 29, 2011 7 Comments

Our household has been enjoying soup this fall.  Our favorite is clam chowder.  All three boys love it as much as their father, so I make it often! I do not have a real recipe and each time it is a bit different, but I enjoy the process every time. Here is what I do - amounts are not critical, just be creative! Canned clams.  Minced or chopped are great. Strain and reserve the clam juice. Dice up an onion. Dice celery. Add a stick of butter.  (not a low fat recipe :) Saute the celery and onion in butter until tender. Peel potatoes and dice up.  Boil potatoes in the clam juice until tender. Add potatoes & clam juice to the celery and onion.  Add clams. Now to make the cream sauce: Butter: Flour Simmer. Add half & half - I use milk sometimes as well, or a mixture of the two. Cook until thickened and smooth. Add to clam mixture. Season with salt and pepper and Old Bay Seasoning. While soup is simmering; knit.  Which is of course, the most important step! The hats are coming along. Eat and enjoy.

My family will agree this chowder is awesome! Even Taylor who doesn’t like clams, thinks it’s delicious! Hpoefully I’ll have better luck copying your recipe than I do with my knitting…I’m at a stand still until I get some serious help : ( .

For someone who doesn’t like clam chowder either…it looks good to me too!
I’d also like to know what that yarn is. :)
