  1. Melt butter in a stockpot over medium-high heat; cook and stir salt pork, celery, onion, and garlic in melted butter until softened, about 7 minutes. Add potatoes, clam juice, tarragon, celery salt, and bay leaves to the stockpot. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and place a cover on the pot. Cook at a simmer until potatoes are tender, about 35 minutes.
  2. Stir clams into the soup and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Add Worcestershire sauce, heavy cream, dill, salt, and pepper; stir and cook another 7 minutes. Remove the pot from heat. Remove and discard bay leaves. Garnish with parsley to serve.

This is by far the tastiest clam chowder I have had. It was creamy without being too thick and very flavorful. I did make it without the saluted pork as I made it for a vegetarian. I just had crumbled bacon on the side for those who wanted it. The terragon added a nice flavor missing from many of the traditional recipes. I was skeptical since at the time it had no reviews or a picture. Wish I had taken a picture, it had good presentation. I did change the servings to 15 instead of 10 and it still turned out perfect.

This was terrific chowder. I did use bacon because that is all I had on hand but followed otherwise. Nice and different flavors. Thanks for sharing.

I went to a very famous clam chowder fest in New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee and the clam chowder winner had tarragon in it..I thought it was delicious!...I always add tarragon(no dill or thyme) to my clam chowder now...it seems as though its been the missing secret ingredient!...just a small amount though, its a very strong spice...this recipe is a keeper indeed
