Hot, salty, brothy soup, the best way I know to soothe a sore throat. Or throats — our whole household succumbed to a particularly nasty sore throat virus last week (not strep), ouch!
This lovely clam chowder so hit the spot on Sunday night, we almost wept into our bowls for the relief.
And oh, medicinal attributes aside, it tastes a-mazing. Rich with bacon and onions, thankfully creamy (but not overly thick!), briny and sweet with clams — I crave it all winter long.
You can skip the flour without consequence and enjoy the chowder gluten-free. I also halve the potato amount for less starch. Experiment and see how you like it best.
