    1. 1
      Place the salt pork in the soup pot and cook until the fat renders; add the onions, carrots, celery, leeks and green peppers to the fat and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are tender.
    2. 2
      Add the garlic and cook until it becomes aromatic, then add the clam juice (or water, if using), the reserved juice from the clams, the diced tomatoes, the bay leaf, the thyme, and oregano; simmer for 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the potatoes and simmer until they are tender, about 20-25 minutes more.
    4. 4
      Skim the soup for fat or chill to allow it to rise and remove; discard bay leaf.
    5. 5
      If chilled, heat through, then add clams and seasonings (salt, pepper, Tabasco, Worcestershire, and Old Bay).
    6. 6
      Serve when hot, about 2-3 minutes after adding clams.

      A spicy, tantalizing dish that people raved about. I used a spicy turkey-sun-dried tomato sausage (Sam's Club) instead of salt pork, and omitted the green peppers (because I was out) and the Old Bay (ditto) -- still just fabulous. I didn't have to skim fat, because I used the lean sausage. I, too, will take Manhattan.

      The best Manhatten Clam Chowder ever. This was a two day process. I used salt pork and made the soup according to your directions. I let if refrigerate overnight, then peeled away the fat layer (yuk). Right before it was time to eat, I heated it up and finished the recipe like you directed. The flavor was awesome and due in large part to the salt pork and seasonings. My family was impressed with me. Thanks for making me look so good.

      Hubby was not happy with having a change in chowder...he loves New England not that red stuff...well he took one bite and said...this is really good...the more he ate the more he loved it...guess what...I can but this in my keeper file...the only change I made was to use razor clams that we dug and froze and I used chopped cherry tomatoes for the can...I normally have all the ingredients handy with the exception of the next time I just might omit it...yummy stuff...thanks for posting it! =)
