John loves soup and I don’t make it all that much. As winter starts to wind down, I figured I better start soupin’ it up! The first? New England Clam Chowder.
I love this soup. It is probably my favorite kind of soup, but I have always been too scared to try and make it myself. You know what? That is silly! It was really easy to make. I combined a whole bunch of recipes to create this.
First, I sauteed some onions and garlic in bacon grease. Our house smelled amazing.
I added in carrots, celery, and potatoes and let it all saute.
When it was all bacon-ey, I added 2 cans of clams with the liquid.
When THAT was warm, I covered it with raw milk and some grass-fed butter.
It warmed up pretty quickly, and I watched it to make sure it didn’t boil. It was so good! I could have used some cream, but I only had a little on the top of the milk on hand. This is definitely going in our meal rotation!
