I have included the original and some of the minor changes that I made.
1/4 lb salt pork - chunked (I fry up 1/2 lb of bacon, chop it and use it instead)
4 cups of diced potatoes (I use already cut up frozen - Orida brand)
1/2 C chopped onion (I don't measure, just chop some, we like a lot of onions!)
2 C milk (I use skim milk because that's what we always have in the refrigerator)
1 C light cream (I use 1/2 and 1/2 cream and I use about 3/4 cup)
3 Tbsp flour
3 cans (6 oz) minced clams with broth (I use 4 - 2 chopped and 2 minced)
Parsley, dill, pepper
Fry up the salt pork. (I use bacon, drain on paper towels) Add the chopped onions to and sauté. Drain well. Put the onion back into the pan, add 1 cup of clam broth and 2 cups of water and potatoes. Cook covered for 15/20 minutes. Add clams, milk and cream. (At this point, if you used salt pork, remove the chunks - this is why I use bacon - you don't have to remove it.
Blend 1/4 cup of milk with the flour; stir in to thicken. Add salt and pepper, couple dashes of dill and parsley. Heat slowly. Serve with oyster crackers.
Cooking change - I only cook it for about 6 to 10 minutes without the potatoes and put it in the crock pot with the potatoes all day. Then I add the flour and finish cooking.
It's what's for dinner tonight!
I finished a purple scarf for Mom - shhhh - it's for Christmas.
