DIRECTIONS

  • In heavy pot (dutch oven) saute bacon until almost crispy.
  • Remove bacon and set aside leaving bacon drippings in pan.
  • Add all vegetables in bacon drippings with clam juice, Tabasco sauce and 1/2 cup water simmering until vegies are soft, but firm, not mushy.
  • Add small amounts of water to keep vegies from scorching if needed.
  • Gently stir in clams.
  • Turn heat down very low so milk will not scorch.
  • Slowly pour in evaporated milk, gently stirring all ingredients together.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste as well as dill weed.
  • Simmer until all ingredients are warm, being careful not to scorch milk.
  • Enjoy with warm corn bread and fresh fruit.
