easy clam chowder

this will make about 48oz of clam chowder
source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P90jTVaA6YU


  • 32oz milk
  • 2 cans chopped clams
  • 8oz clam juice
  • 1 onion
  • 4oz butter
  • 1 rib celery
  • 1 lb of potatoes
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 bay leaves


- melt butter in pan
- dice onions and celery finely. sweat in pan

- while this is happening, cook diced potatoes separately in another vessel. salt the water if you wish.

- before veggies are browned, add flour to coat all the veggies. I think this is how a lazy man creates a roux.

- Once you have that mixed up, add the clam juice a little at a time, eliminate all lumps if possible. Scrape whatever is at the bottom of the pan.

- add milk slowly, and mix all together.

- add the bay leaves, clams, juice and all

- add the drained potatoes, which should be al dente at this point.

- simmer, stir frequently, reduce until thickened

add salt/pepper to taste
