Rhode Island Clam Chowder

Render down some double-smoked bacon, and then sautee finely chopped onions and celery in the grease. Add a bunch of canned chopped clams and bottles of clam juice and bring to a boil. Add a bay leaf, some dried thyme, and a fuckton of ground black pepper. Add a few cups of 1/4 inch pieces of cubed potato, simmer for about 40 minutes, and then put in a couple dozen scrubbed little-neck clams. Boil until the clams open. Eat the shit. With motherfucking Jameson, obviously!

    Just the way I remember it. A most excellent chowder.

    A minor variant, to be used only in late summer. Peel, seed and dice just two dead ripe garden fresh tomatoes and add to chowder at same time as whole clams. This is *not* anything like Manhattan chowder.

    What’s the point of decorating with a few clam shells if you’re using shit out of a mother fucking can? If you want chowder, get your self a couple of 30 year-old 6 inch quahogs fresh off the docks.

    Can you buy me a plane ticket to North A-fucking-merica?

    Otherwise, it’s cuttlefish chowder.
