Francesca's New England Style Clam Chowder


  • Chopped sea clams any kind, keep all the juice
  • Salt & pepper
  • White wine
  • Garlic (minced)
  • Onion (chopped) all purpose
  • Butter
  • Whole milk
  • Potatoes: boiled, peeled, chopped. (I like Maine potatoes).
  • Family spice blend: these are whole spices that are ground in small food processor to produce the mix
  • Dry onion, garlic powder, parsley, rosemary, celery seed, thyme, coriander, bay leaves & pepper


  1. Put butter & onion is stock pot-sweat onions, add salt & pepper & garlic & wine
  2. Add spice blend & potatoes, heat stirring until potatoes are coated
  3. Add clams & all juice, stir keep heating
  4. Add milk and keep heating on medium heat until it reaches 140 + degrees
  5. Taste for salt & pepper or maybe even more family spice blend-depends on what you like
  6. This chowder actually tastes best the next day.
