DIRECTIONS

  • Leave clams overnight in salted water and then wash thoroughly in several waters to clean all the sand.
  • Dice bacon and onion and sauté with oil and butter in deep pot.
  • Add clams and a parsley sprig.
  • Cover and allow simmering slowly for about 20 minutes, stirring from time to time so onions do not burn.
  • Add water.
  • When this comes to a boil, add rice; add 10 ounces frozen peas to the soup when rice is soft.
  • Allow to come to a boil again and then turn heat down, allowing soup to simmer slowly until rice has softened almost to a paste.
  • Remove all empty shells which have loosened from the clams.
