2 pounds of fresh clams (such as littleneck clams)
4 slices of bacon, chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 -3 medium red potatoes, peeled and diced
2 cups chicken broth
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons butter
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Looking for convenient options to make your clam chowder?
If fresh clams aren't your thing, consider using a 6.5 oz can of chopped clams in clam juice – it's a time-saver! To enhance the flavor, you can also pick up a bottle of all-natural clam juice. Just be sure both the juice and clams are free from added preservatives.
My personal favorite for all-natural clam juice is Snow's! Give it a try and simplify your clam chowder recipe.
