Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Cover and cook until tender. Meanwhile, in a large pot, sauté onions in butter until tender. Add flour; mix until smooth and cook for a minute. Slowly stir in milk (use a whisk, if necessary). Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and somewhat bubbly (this will take a little bit of time - do not walk away, the bottom will begin to stick).
  • Drain potatoes; add to large pot. Add clams and remaining ingredients; heat through.
  • Serve with oyster crackers, or saltines with butter, or you can even serve it in a bread bowl.
  • *I am not a big fan of sage so I only use a 1/2 tsp. If you like the taste, go ahead and use the whole tsp.

    I made this Chowder with canned oysters & oyster liquid+evap. milk with which to replace some of the milk. It was so good. And perfect for the VERY unusual several days of rain we've been having. I tried it as written (with the exceptions already mentioned). In my 2nd & 3rd bowls, I played with the seasoning by adding a sprinkle of Old Bay original, & their newer "Garlic & Herb" (surprisingly, either was NOT a good addition); I then tried Spike, which was a very good addition. Thanks for the recipe, Babs!

    Definitely! I would guess that after the liquid is drained, the diced clams comes out to about 1-1/2 cups. But add what looks right to you.

    Sound delicious! I saved it and will definitely try it. *5*
    Can I replace the canned clams with fresh or frozen ones? I am sure we don't have canned clams in Portugal.. it would be much easier if we did..
