Fish/clam chowder

2 posts in this topic

The only cooking I use milk/cream for is a fish or clam chowder and lobster stew. Do you make them and how do you do it?

Thanks

I use corn juice. The corn juice thickens itself to choweder consistency simply by heating it. I shuk live clams into the thickened corn chowder, off the fire, being careful to see that all juice from the shell goes into the chowder. Because there is no butter or bacon fat roux masking the flavors, the small amount of clam juice from the shells and fresh clams show through. Corn and clams like each other so it;s a good match. Dice and roast the veggies you would like to add and fold them into the chowder (grill corn on the cob and slice the grilled corn off as well). Freshen it with lemon juice and tarragon.
