After the storm-- Clam Chowder!

I friend of mine posted on Facebook yesterday that she was whipping up some New England Clam Chowder. And I thought, how perfect is that for this dreary, rainy, post-Frankenstorm weather! I didn't have the ingredients then but I do now. So here is the recipe:


6-7 strips of bacon cut into small pieces
1 onion chopped
2 cans of minced clams (reserve the juice)
6-7 potatoes cubes
2 (10.5oz cans of cream of celery soup)
1 cup of half and half
1 cup of milk
1tbsp of butter
1 tsp of dried dill weed

1.Fry bacon until crispy and spoon into soup pot (with some of the fat)
2.add onion and cook till translucent
3.add clam juice from both cans
4 add potatoes
5. Cook and cover till potatoes are fork tender (15-20min)
6.Stir occasionally so potatoes won't stick
7. Add clams, soup, half and half, milk and dill weed
8. stir together
9 Add butter and let it melt into chowder
10. cook for about 30-40min until thickened
11. stir occasionally
