Sea Food Chowder

Sea Food chowder is one of my family favorites for winter time and also on game day.

Here is what you will need

1 jar clam juice

1 can tiny shrimp (rinsed)

1 can crabmeat (rinsed)

2 cans minced clams

2 cups Heavy whipping cream

2 cups 2% milk

½ cup Diced Onion

½ cup Diced Celery

5 Slices of Bacon Diced

¼ teaspoon Garlic powder

¼ teaspoon Chicken Bouillon

3 Piled and diced Russet Potatoes

In a large pot brown the diced bacon. Remove from pan. Leave about 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat in the pan, sauteed onion and celery in the bacon fat. Once onions and celery are slightly browned add the 1 jar of clam juice, the juice from the 2 cans of minced clams, and the diced potatoes. Cook on med high heat until the potatoes are tender. When the potatoes are ready add the heavy whipping cream, milk, garlic powder, chicken bouillon, clams, crab and shrimp. Cook on low for 30 minutes. If you would like a thicker soup stir in 2 tablespoons of flour mixed in water.
