  • Chowder Update

    2011 - 07.19

    I finally got into the clams that we had in our freezer from our trip to Sooke.  I was a little nervous about making chowder *, as I don’t think I’ve really made any cream soups before.  Overall, it was pretty easy, thanks to my prep cook, The Dave.  I had everything measured out for me and put into little bowls…I felt like a TV chef! :) I was surprised at how easy it actually was.

    1. Take clams out of freezer and put in fridge to defrost.
    2. Two days later, start chopping clams.
    3. Cook some bacon in a pot and reserve drippings (I didn’t do this first, so I did it after and added some drippings)
    4. Cook herbs, clam juice, onions ** and potatoes in pot.
    5. Add cream, milk and flour.  Let cook for a bit.
    6. Rinse off clams because of panic that they’re going to taste too strong.
    7. Add clams.
    8. Cook a little bit.
    9. Nom with sourdough rolls
    10. Realise I forgot to put bacon in.
    11. Decide it’s pretty delicious and doesn’t matter.
    12. Eat more the next day and forget bacon again.  Decide it’s ok because it tastes even better the next day.
    13. Give some to a friend and wait impatiently until he gets home and lets me know how it tasted. ;)
    14. Consider doing it again with the rest of the clams in the freezer.
    15. Write blog post and put up pictures on Flickr.

    * or, as Dave and I call it “CHOW-DAH!”

    ** I used onion powder…or as I say in my head “POW-DAH!”

      Hey, how did you know I was just uploading those pictures to Flickr?

      And that explains why I couldn’t find the other container in the fridge!
