Shelling out the Clams for a delicious fall dish. Comfort Food Central!

 Iingredients you will need for Jim's Simple Clam Chowder:

64 oz chopped sea clams, drained - reserve juice
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup shredded carrot
1 cup chopped bacon
1T celery seed
1/8 t salt
1/8 t pepper
5 lbs red potatoes, cut into chunks
2 qts half and half at room temperature

Sweat onions in large stock pot. Then Add carrots, bacon, salt, pepper and celery seed.  Add clam juice and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to a simmer and add potatoes- cook until just done.  Add clams.  Slowly add half and half and bring back to temperature.  Simmer for at least 30 minutes before serving. 

Serve fresh as an awesome clam chowder. My suggestion for leftovers would be to make some al dente Linguine noodles, add the seafood chowder, some fresh parsley, and top off with Parmesan cheese, then bake at 350 for 15 minutes. It’s all good!!!
