Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a pot, add the Fresh Clams (3 lb) and Water (5 cups) . Bring to a boil and cook the clams until they open. Remove the scum off the top. Drain the liquid and set aside.
Step 2
Remove clam meat from the shells and set aside.
Step 3
While the clams are cooking, slice Wright® Brand Smoked Bacon (8 slices) into 2 inch pieces. Cook the bacon in some oil until crisp. Do not crowd the pan. Remove to paper towels to drain; set aside.
Step 4
Peel and cube the Potatoes (2) and Celery (1/4 stalk) , if using.
Step 5
Finely chop the Onion (1) , Scallions (1 stalk) and mince the Garlic (5 cloves) . Set aside.
Step 6
In a large pot, melt the Butter (2 Tbsp) and saute the chopped onion and celery with some Salt (1/4 tsp) and Brown Sugar (1 tsp) . This will help caramelize the onion, about 4 minutes.
Step 7
Once you have a nice dark color, add the minced garlic and saute for another minute.
Step 8
Add in the cubed potatoes and saute for another 4 minutes. Add the reserved clam liquid, Chicken Bouillon Cube (1) , Dried Thyme (1/2 tsp) , and Ground White Pepper (1/4 tsp) .
Step 9
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Step 10
While soup is simmering, in a cup, add the Cream (1/2 cup) , Milk (1/2 cup) , All-Purpose Flour (1/3 cup) and mix to dissolve. Gradually stir into the soup.
Step 11
Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Add more water if you prefer a thinner consistency. Lower heat, stir in clam meat and Shredded Cheese (1/4 cup) .
Step 12
Crumble the crispy bacon and add it to the pot. Season with Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 13
Serve with toasted sourdough bread, bacon on top, and chopped green onion. Enjoy!
