    Home-made Manhattan Clam Chowder

    It's another one of those windy, rainy, 45* cold days here in Eastern NC, and I got to rummaging around the cupboard lookin' for some fixin's to make a clam chowder. Found two 10 ounce cans of baby clams, checked the freezer, found a two pound bag of mixed veggies, (corn, string beans, diced carrots, just use 1/2 the bag), pulled out two healthy 'taters from the 'tater-bin, sliced up the 'taters into small pieces, ('bout the size of a normal mans small finger-tip), pre-cooked them, added all the other ingredients into a 6 quart stainless pot along with half of a 32 ounce jar of V-8 low sodium, added the pre-cooked 'taters when they were just soft enough to not have a crunch when bit into, added a medium dash of garlic salt, 3 pinches of parsley, 1 pinch of basil, and let simmer for half an hour before ladling out into a bowl.
    Oyster crackers on hand, it was time to feed the grocery-hole, and it was DELICIOUS !!!!
    And that folks, is how we do it down east here....

    I sure love clam chowder, especially New England. Tabasco sauce goes really well with it.

    Man did this thread title get my attention! Manhattan Clam Chowder is my favorite soup but have never had homemade. And it's so hard to find around here - all the stores stock only New England style for the most part.

    I know I probably don't know what I am missing only ever having Campbell's........

    From the time you start (using this recipe) till the time you set down to eat, maybe an hour and a half.
    Not too shabby, and enough to feed 6 grownups.

    Don't know why but it's really hard to find good clam chowder in the store around here.

    In NY? I was under the impression that NY had a pretty good handle on most all foods?
    Well, then again, most time us here in the South hear "NY", we tend to think of mainstream city life.
    That being said, I'm not real sure where "Texas NY" is located, but, I do know that UPSTATE NY is quite a different world than NYC.
    First time I ever had the pleasure of eating Ground Hog was up near Thousand Islands on the way to a fishing trip in Quebec, and it was mighty tasty. Kinda' sorta' reminded me of baked Muskrat, which I do love, and not often enough.
