  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 5 ounce cans baby clams
  • reserved juice from the 2 5 ounce cans of baby clams
  • 6 -7 potatoes cubed or diced into small pieces
  • 2 10 1/2 ounce cans cream of celery soup
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Add onion to a heavy soup pot or dutch oven and cook on medium high until tender.
  • Next add all the clam juice from both cans of baby clams and stir until blended. Add potatoes and cover.
  • Cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 10 minutes. Keep stirring every few minutes to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom.
  • Finally, add the clams, soup cream and milk and stir.
  • Then add the butter and simmer soup for about 45 minutes on low heat until thick and creamy.
  • If you want a thicker base, mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch in 1/4 cup of cold water and stir into chowder.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Allow to cook for another 20 minutes until you get the consistency you want. Stir occasionally while simmering.
  • Serve in soup bowls or bread bowls and sprinkle with a few oyster crackers. Add some garlic bread for a nice touch.
