Clam chowder is the specialty of Mark, a very charming fellow I knew in university. He always made it when trying to impress a lady.
4 slices of bacon, cut into matchsticks
1 large onion, finely chopped
6 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
2 cups milk (or ½ cup dry milk powder mixed with 2 cups of water)
1 6 oz (192) can of clams, juice drained and saved
1 tsp dry parsley flakes
½ tsp salt
pepper to taste
In a medium pot over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp.
Remove the bacon and set aside.
Fry the chopped onion in the bacon fat until translucent.
Add the potatoes, carrot, milk, salt, and clam juice and simmer for 15 min or until potatoes are tender.
Finely chop the clams and add to the pot along with the bacon, parsley, and a little pepper.
Serve with lots of crusty bread and a dry white wine!
One of the strengths of Hughes’s book is its comprehensiveness; it covers the utensils and cookware you need (none of it complicated) to be well supplied. She covers coolers and refrigeration, and safe storage of food; but not in an over-detailed or overly simplistic way. I actually learned a few things. But the really nice thing about this book? It’s the recipes, and they come from a person who obviously enjoys good food and eating well.-- The Western Star --
