Christmas Recipe

One of the challenges on the WeCraftCards.com site this week is a Christmas Recipe card.  So, I figured I’d share a favorite recipe with you.

Every Christmas Eve, my mom invites family, friends, extended family, over for Clam Chowder and sandwiches.  It’s a fun evening of fellowship.  Now, this isn’t the recipe my mom uses, as she does BULK, but this is my favorite clam chowder recipe.  It is, my mother-in-law’s recipe.

CLAM CHOWDER – by Judy Peterson

  • 2 cans minced clams
  • 1 cup onion, chopped fine
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 2 cups potatoes, diced (don’t rinse)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 pint half&half
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sugar

Drain juice of clams into a saucepan.  Add vegetables and bring to boil.  (Be careful not to scorch.)  Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.

Melt butter in large saucepan.  Add flour and stir until smooth.  Add milk, half & half, salt pepper and sugar.  Cook, stirring constantly until smooth and thick.

Add vegetables, including juice, and clams.  Stir to mix and heat through.

Enjoy!

Thanks for spending some time with me today.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  If you aren’t in the United States, have a wonderful week.
