30 littleneck clams (about 3 pounds), scrubbed

New England Clam Chowder image

Provided by Anne Burrell

Time 1h5m

Yield Serves 4

Number Of Ingredients 12

4 dozen little neck or cherry stone clams, scrubbed
4 thick slices bacon, cut into lardons
1 large onions, cut into 1/4 inch dice
Kosher salt
11/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch dice
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 bundle of thyme
2 bay leaves
1 to 2 shakes hot sauce, optional (recommended: Tabasco)
Extra-virgin olive oil

Steps:

  • Place the clams and 1 cup of water in a large pot. Cover and place over a high heat and cook the clams for 6 to 7 minutes. Uncover and remove the open clams.Cover the pot again and continue cooking the clams that haven't opened yet. Cook the clams for another 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and discard any clams that have not opened. Strain the liquid from the pot through a mesh strainer lined with a coffee filter and reserve.
  • Coarsely chop the clams and reserve.
  • Drizzle a few drops of olive oil into the bottom of the clam pot and toss in the bacon. Bring the pan to a medium heat.

Cook the onions until they are very soft and aromatic but have no color, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the potatoes and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the onions and potato mixture and stir to combine. Gradually whisk in the reserved clam juice. When the clam juice has been whisked in and there are no lumps, whisk in the milk and heavy cream and toss in the bay leaves and thyme. Taste for seasoning and adjust if needed. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer and simmer until the potatoes are cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes.

Provided by Emeril Lagasse

Categories     main-dish

Time 2h30m

Yield 4 quarts, 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 16

6 sprigs fresh thyme
2 bay leaves
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 5 cups)
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 teaspoons salt, or to taste
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into half-tablespoon pieces
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives or green onions
10 pounds small quahogs or large cherrystone clams, scrubbed and rinsed, open clams discarded
6 slices bacon, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 medium leeks, white and light green parts only, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise (2 1/2 to 3 cups)
1 cup finely chopped onions
1 cup finely chopped celery
2 teaspoons minced garlic

Steps:

  • In a large stockpot bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Add the clams, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Uncover the pot and quickly stir the clams with a wooden spoon. Cover and cook 5 to 10 minutes longer (this will depend on the type and size of the clams), or until most of the clams are open.
  • Transfer the clams to a large bowl or baking dish and strain the broth twice through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, being careful to strain out the sand. (You should have about 8 cups of clam broth. If not, add enough water to bring the volume up to 8 cups.) When the clams are cool enough to handle, remove them from their shells and chop into 1/2-inch pieces. Set the clams and broth aside.
  • Cook the bacon in a large heavy pot over medium heat until crisp and the fat is rendered. Pour off all the bacon fat except 2 tablespoons. Add the 4 tablespoons butter, leeks, onions, and celery and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, and bay leaves and cook until the vegetables are thoroughly wilted, about 3 minutes, being careful not to brown. Add the potatoes and reserved clam broth and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer until the broth thickens slightly and the potatoes are very tender, about 30 minutes. (If you like a thicker broth, mash some of the potatoes against the side of the pot with a wooden spoon.). Remove from the heat, Discard the thyme stems and bay leaves, stir in the clams and cream, and season with the pepper and the salt to taste.
  • Set the chowder aside for 1 hour, covered, to allow the flavors to marry. Place the pot over low heat and slowly reheat, being careful not to let boil. Serve hot; garnish each bowl with a pat of butter and some parsley and chives.

JIM'S NEW ENGLAND CLAM CHOWDER



Jim's New England Clam Chowder image

After years of watching my New England relatives try to perfect their versions of this venerable seaside staple and several morphs and versions of my own, this has become my favorite. It yields a hearty delicious chowder that is not too thick. It is also forgiving enough that you can tweak it a bit to make it more healthy. For parties, I make this recipe as follows then place it in a crock pot on low. Guests eat it all day and there are never any leftovers!

Provided by Vic Damoth

Categories     Chowders

Time 1h

Yield 5 Quarts, 8-10 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 (51 ounce) can clams (chopped or minced, Costco or BJ's carries these size cans)
3 lbs Red Bliss potatoes (you won't have to peel the bliss!) or 3 lbs maine utility potatoes (you won't have to peel the bliss!)
6 ounces salt pork
3 celery ribs
1 large onion
2 cups milk (I use 2%)
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 sprig fresh rosemary, in cheesecloth or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, in a tea ball
salt and pepper

Steps:

  • Dice the salt pork into small cubes.
  • I usually slice it into a grid while it is still attached to the skin, then slice across the skin where it attaches to the fat and the cubes pop off easily.
  • Sauté the salt pork in a large 5 quart non stick sauce pan.
  • When the cubes are golden brown strain them from the rendered fat onto a paper bag to drain.
  • Save 4 tablespoons of the liquid fat from the salt pork,then wipe out the sauce pan with a paper towel.
  • Put the fat back in the sauce pan.
  • Dice the large onion into small pieces.
  • Slice the 3 ribs of celery lengthwise then dice it into small pieces.
  • Place the diced onion and celery into the heated pork fat and sauté until the onions are opaque and the celery is a bit soft.
  • Pour the entire can of clams (broth and all) into the onion/celery mixture and bring to a simmer.
  • Place the rosemary into the clam broth mixture.
  • Peel the Maine potatoes OR scrub the red bliss potatoes.
  • Then cut them into 3/4-inch cubes--I like them a bit chunky--and soak them in cold water for about five minutes.
  • Take the stick of butter and melt it in a small sauce pan.
  • Add the 3 tablespoons of flour to the melted butter and stir until well blended.
  • Drain the potatoes and place them into the clam mixture, simmer until al dente.
  • Next, pour the 2 cups of milk into the simmering clam broth mixture and bring back to a simmer.
  • Lastly, swirl the butter/flour roux into the chowder and simmer for about 10 more minutes until the chowder thickens.
  • Remove the rosemary and serve this chowder in big bowls with oyster crackers and the pieces of golden brown pork fat, salt and pepper to taste.
  • NOTE: I don't like my chowder too thick so you may have to adjust the butter/flour mixture.
  • You may skip the butter and use a low-fat margarine.
  • You may also substitute skim milk too (or skip the milk altogether, this is called Point Judith/Rhode Island style!).
  • You may even skip the whole pork fat thing for a healthier recipe.
  • This chowder is so hearty that it stands up well to "healthier alternative" substitutions.

Provided by Ravenseyes

Categories     Chowders

Time 1h50m

Yield 10 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 11

6 dozen clams
1 cup diced onion
8 cups potatoes
1/2 cup celery
3 garlic cloves
12 cups clam juice
3 cups fat-free half-and-half
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter

Steps:

  • In a large steamer pot add your cleaned clams - with 1 cup of white wine and 2 tsps crushed garlic. Steam until clams are fully opened.
  • Remove clams from the pot and set aside to cool.
  • Reserve all liquids from the clam steam (this is the clam liquor - add bottled clam juice to equal 12 cups).
  • In a 6 qt or larger pot add 1 tbsp olive oil, over medium high heat, add onions, celery, garlic and potatoes. Cook for approximately 5 minutes or until onions are clear.
  • Add clam liquor and cook till potatoes are tender.
  • In a small pot melt butter add flour, salt and pepper cook for two minutes slowly add several ladles of the clam juice from the soup pot to the rue and cook till it begins to thicken, remember to stir constantly while thickening or you will burn your rue. Return the rue to the soup pot and allow the two to come together. Add cream and cook for 10 minutes.
  • The last touch is to add your chopped clams - I add them last so they don't turn to rubber. Serve with a nice crusty bread.
