Mmm, good! Oakies version of clam chowder. Don't forget the saltines! Add one more jar of clam juice, for those of you who like it clammy -- I know that's how my hubby likes it. Enjoy!

I quadrupled this recipe for an office potluck at work, what a hit! Here are some of the changes I made: I sauteed the bacon, onions and celery, and added the flour to the bacon fat to make the roux. I love potatoes in my clam chowder so I diced up a couple pounds of potatoes and simmered them in a large stock pot of the clam juice and water. After the potatoes were tender, I added to bacon/onion/celery roux and thickend the broth. Then I added some milk and cream and the minced clams. It was so simple and sooooo good! This recipe is going in my book of keepers!

This recipe is excellent, and very easy. Instead of using bottled clam juice, which can be gritty, I prefer the St.Ours clam broth you buy in a package and mix with water.

This clam chowder is awesome! I don't like potatoes in soup, so I'm always picking them out. When I found this without potatoes, I had to try it. I've made it twice now and it's is absolutely the best chowder I've ever had. Very easy to make and full of flavor. Thank you, Cathie!
