I live at the ocean with a lobster fisherman husband. Here's New England Clam Chowder (or add fish, and /or creamed corn):

1. fry onions (I like a lot - maybe 3 medium onions)

2. add potatoes (I like about 6 medium)& water to just barely cover

3. add salt pork to potatoes (can use bacon strips - 2 or 3) cook;

4. when potatoes are soft, add clams canned or cooked & shucked or fish & cook until done; or add 1 to 2 can(s) creamed corn

5. add a can of evaporated skim milk & additional milk to make a nice broth

6. heat & add generous pepper

7. add a slice of butter on each bowl if desired

8. some people add flour to thicken.
