    2Bleu's Note:

    Most clam chowders have way too much potato and not enough clams for my taste. I (Bird) developed this recipe fix that. I use an immersion blender to cream the potatoes into the chowder, then add lots of clams. :)

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large dutch oven, cook bacon until crisp and fat is rendered. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat. Add the butter, onions, celery, garlic, and bay leaf and cook about 5 minutes until vegetables are tender.
    2. 2
      Add the potatoes and the reserved clam broth and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer about 30 minutes, until broth has thickened slightly and the potatoes are tender.
    3. 3
      Remove bay leaf from pot. Using an immersion mixer (or blender), blend soup to a fine consistency. Stir in the clams and heavy whipping cream. Taste for saltiness, then season with white pepper, salt, and mace (to your liking).
    4. 4
      Can be eaten right away, but it's best the next day. Just let cool and refrigerate overnight. The next day simmer the soup to re-heat, but do not boil.

      We really loved this soup. I made a few adjustments, due to our tastes. I only used 3 cans of the chopped clams and increased the heavy cream amt. to 3 cups. I also kept the potato diced, without blending. We like it that way. I do think the soup would have been thicker if the potatoes were blended in, but we liked it with the potato chunks and it was still a good consistency. Any way you cook this, it is excellent soup! Rich and full of great flavor.

      I'm with you when it comes to the clams in a chowder like this ~ MORE is BETTER! I did follow the recipe right on down, but did cut it in half for the 2 of us! Loved everything about it, the flavor, the thickness, the overwhelming satisfaction of a great tasting clam chowder! Thanks for sharing the recipe! A keeper, for sure!
