  • Saute and simmer the following¬†ingredients:
  • 1 cup chopped onions or 1/2 cup freeze-dried chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery or 1/2 cup freeze-dried chopped celery
  • 2 cups cubed raw potatoes or equal amount reconstituted cubed dehydrated potatoes
  • Juice from 2 cans of clams
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  1. Grab a large size pan and melt 3/4 cup butter and add 3/4 cup flour to make a white sauce, quickly whisk. When it is all creamy, slowly add 1-1/2 cups cream plus 3 to 3 1/2 cups milk. Stir constantly and use a whisk to keep from getting lumps. I get lumps too sometimes. No worries, bring out the hand mixer to make it smooth. Combine the other ingredients and you have a fabulous clam chowder. Sprinkle some grated cheese on each bowl.
