A New England Thanksgiving – Short Cut Clam Chowder

November 20, 2012

I totally think canned clams are gross. But I totally used them in this recipe. And it totally didn’t matter, it was still delicious. I’d been wanting to try clam chowder for a while, and Bon Appetit’s recipe looked simple enough. The recipe gives the option of cooking your own clams (which really isn’t complicated, I just didn’t feel like dealing with it), or using canned clams and clam juice. There is surprisingly little cream in the recipe, plus you can use far less than is called for and still have a really rich tasting chowder. I also used Vermont Smoke and Cure pre-chopped bacon, another short cut that proved to be easy and delicious. This would be a great starter for a New England Thanksgiving dinner.

New England Clam Chowder. Yum.
