Make and share this Chesapeake Clam Chowder recipe from Food.com.
- Boil water and add potatoes and onion.
- Cook until tender.
- Add bacon drippings, salt and sugar and pepper.
- Cut up clams and add.
- Cook 10 minutes.
- Slowly pour in milk and stir until soup begins to thicken.
This has terrific flavor with a nice hint of sweetness. It's super easy to prepare, too. The only thing was that I think 1 1/2 quarts of water was too much. It made it to "watery." I would certainly make this again, but only use 1 quart of water (or maybe just double the potatoes and clams). Everything is else is terrific just as written! Thanx for a great new clam chowder!
