  • 3 Slices bacon diced
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 cups scaled whole milk
  • 2 cups diced potatoes
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 6 ounces minced clams


  • Cook potatoes until they are done but firm. Drain water off and set aside. Place 1 1/2 Cups milk and half and half into a saucepan on medium temperature and heat just until it starts to boil. Immediately remove from stove and set aside. Scalding milk will help prevent it from curdling. 
  • When the potatoes have cooked cut into large Julianne slices. In large pan fry bacon on medium high temperature to render grease from bacon and when done carefully take bacon from pan and leave grease. Place onions in bacon drippings and saute until clear. 
  • Add scalded milk, cooked potatoes, clams with juice, and seasonings. Bring to a slow simmer and stir occasionally, cook for 25 - 30 minutes. Chowder may be thicken now by adding flour to 1/2 cup of milk mixing well and slowly adding to chowder and stirring constantly until thick as desired and creamy.

      I found their recipe for that soup listed in their blog on the sweet tomatoe/souplantation website. Made it several times. Did cut the recipe in half but it still makes ALOT. Freezes pretty well though. good luck.
