I left the recipe for the cheese and onion biscuits on Baking Delights
, so when you get done with drooling over this head over there to look at those. In our house you almost have to have the cheese and onion biscuits to go with the chowder
I battle the battle against all things fat. In other words, I don't want to lose out on taste by cutting calories. I would rather eat 1/4 c of rich, creamy chowder, than 2 cups of chowder made with skim milk. So don't expect to find low cal here. :)Awesome Clam Chowder
2 large cans whole baby clams with juice
2 onions chopped
2 stalks celery chopped
1 clove garlic
3 tbs unsalted butter
2 potatoes, diced and cooked until just tender
2 c half and half
2 c heavy cream
2 c organic, free range chicken broth
1/4 c butter for garnishing
Saute the onion, celery and garlic in butter in a stockpot until soft. Add potatoes, clams, and chicken broth and simmer for 10 minutes to allow flavors to meld and the broth to reduce slightly..
Add half and half and cream and bring to a simmer for 15 minutes. You may add a tablespoon or two of flour to thicken it if you need to.
Now, put a ladle of the soup in warmed bowls, top with a pat of butter and salt and pepper to taste.
Servings vary. LOL!
