New England "Championship" Chowder
Yield: 8 servings
2 quarts littleneck clams
2 quarts manila clams
1 head of garlic, cut in half
1 onion, skin on, cut in quarters
1 bunch fresh thyme
1 bunch fresh parsley
2 cups water
2 ounces pancetta, finely diced
6 ounces butter
1 cup white onion, finely minced
1 cup red onion, finely minced
6 ounces flour
1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, diced
4 cups reserved clam broth
2 cups canned clam or seafood stock
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup fresh chives, minced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced
Scrub the clam shells and rinse under cold water until free of any dirt or debris. Place them in a large pot along with the onion, garlic, herbs and water. Steam the clams just until opened, about 6 to 10 minutes, depending upon their size. Drain the clams, reserving the broth. Remove flesh from shells, chop finely, and set aside. Filter the clam broth either through coffee filters or cheesecloth and set aside.
In a large, heavy pot slowly render the pancetta until golden brown. Remove the cracklings, leaving rendered fat in the pan, and drain on a paper towel. Add butter and slowly cook the onions for about 6 minutes stirring frequently, but do not brown. Whisk in the flour and cook for 3 minutes. Add the reserved clam broth and stock, and whisk to remove any flour lumps. Bring the liquid to boil, add the potatoes, lower the heat, and simmer until the potatoes are cooked through, about 15 minutes. Stir in the reserved clams, pancetta, cream and herbs.
