    "Food:The Way To Anyone's Heart"'s Note:

    This is a tradition in Rhode Island! When I was growing up there was an amusement park on the shore called "Rocky Point". It had a huge Shore Dinner Hall that served a meal of lobster, chowder, clamcakes, sweet corn and watermelon. This is the original recipe for the red chowder. It makes 20-8 ounce servings so you may want to cut the recipe in half. Serve with my clam cake recipe. Close your eyes, take a bite and you are in Rhode Island!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large stockpot, heat the salt pork until fat melts.
    2. 2
      Add chopped onions; Cook over gentle heat until very soft.
    3. 3
      Add clam juice, potatoes, seasonings, tomato puree, and alittle water; simmer until the potatoes are soft.
    4. 4
      Add quahogs/clams.
    5. 5
      Heat and taste for seasoning.
    6. 6
      TIP: It is best to use old, not new, potatoes because they thicken the chowder with their starch.
    7. 7
      This is not a thick chowder, but can be thickened by crushing Pilot crackers and adding to the chowder near the end of cooking.
