One of our favorite clam chowder recipes is the classic New England.com recipe, from the editors of Yankee Magazine. This hearty soup combines tender shellfish, smoky bacon, chunky potatoes, and a creamy base, resulting in a comforting and delicious dish that never fails to satisfy.


6 servings


7 pounds cherrystone clams, scrubbed and rinsed
3 cups water
4 bacon strips, finely chopped
1 medium-size Spanish onion, diced small
2 tablespoons flour
3 large red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 cup heavy cream



In a large soup pot over high heat, add clams to water. Bring to a boil and cook just until clams open, about 10 minutes. Remove clams from broth and set aside. (Discard any clams that don’t open.) Strain broth through a sieve lined with a coffee filter and set aside.

Clean your soup pot; then, over medium-high heat, sauté bacon until it’s browned and fat is rendered. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon to a paper towel. Discard all but 2 tablespoons bacon fat. Add diced onion to pot and sauté until translucent.

Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute, being careful not to brown. Whisk in reserved clam broth. Add potatoes and thyme, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Remove clams from shells, reserve the liquid, and chop roughly. Strain liquid; then add clams and liquid to pot. Stir in parsley, cream, and reserved bacon; cook just long enough to heat clams through, about 3 minutes.

Warming Up New England Style:

As the cold weather sets in, let clam chowder be your go-to companion for warmth and comfort. A bowl of clam chowder is the simplest, most delightful way to chase away the chill, and embrace the moments of winter. This clam chowder recipe brings the joy of homemade comfort to your table, all while wrapped in the classic, coastal charm of your anchor sweater. The hearty flavors of clam chowder seamlessly pair with the comfort and style of these fashionable sweaters.  Indulge in the warmth of both the savory soup and the solid embrace of your stylish sweater.
