Creamy New England Clam Chowder

8

Creamy and flavorful, this chowder is perfect for those chilly nights

If you have never steamed clams before, here is how you do it:
¼ c. water
½ c. chicken broth
6 cloves garlic, crushed
2-3 Lbs. clams (rinse them off really good, then put them in a bowl with salt water in the fridge for a while)
Bring first three ingredients to a boil. Add clams, cover with a lid, then steam until all the clam shells open up (about 5-10 minutes). Do not over cook. Remove from heat, drain... and that's it!
Clam Chowder:
¾ c. butter, melted
1 c. flour
1 c. celery, finely diced
1 c. onions, finely diced
1 c. leeks, finely diced
3-4 cups red potatoes, diced (we use about 3 c. because we like it nice and thick, if you like a thinner clam chowder use less)
¾ c. clams, shelled & chopped (use FRESH clams and steam them yourself)
¾ Tbsp. FRESH ground black pepper
1½ Tbsp. salt (use KOSHER salt, not table salt)
¾ Tbsp. whole thyme
6 bay leaves
4 shakes Tabasco sauce
3 c. chicken broth
¾ c. clam juice
1 quarts half & half
