Recipe Ingredients for New England Clam-Corn Chowda

1/8 lb low-sodium bacon, diced
1 large onion, diced
4 cups (2 medium) yams, peeled and cubed
15 1/4 oz (1 can) unsalted whole kernel corn, drained
20 oz clams, drained
8 cups water
2 cups 2% milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Recipe Directions for New England Clam-Corn Chowda

  1. Preheat large heavy-bottomed stock pot over high heat.

  2. Dice bacon and onions. Brown together in bottom of pan. When bacon is browned and onions are translucent and slightly browned, add 4c water, reduce heat to medium, cover, and bring to a boil.

  3. Peel and cube root vegetables. Cut corn from cob, or use drained canned. My grandmother used creamed corn and less milk instead; you could do that, too.

  4. Add diced root vegetables and corn. Cook covered until tender.

  5. Add remainder of water, cover, return to boil. Add clams. Now is the time to simmer together for a while if desired, but that isn't necessary if you're in a hurry.

  6. Reduce heat to low. Add milk, replace cover, and reheat soup, being careful not to boil or scorch the milk.

  7. Or, you can make this in a slow cooker. In that case, still brown onions and bacon together first, then cook through the day on low. Don't add the milk until just before serving. Just remember the milk will cool the soup, so reheat to serving temperature before serving.

  8. Serve and enjoy! Freezes well.
