East Hampton Clam Chowder

Ingredients

  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter divided

  • 2 cups chopped yellow onions

  • 2 cups medium diced celery

  • 2 cups medium-diced carrots

  • 4 cups peeled medium diced boiling potatoes

  • 1.5 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 0.5 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 cups clams juice

  • 0.5 cup plain flour

  • 2 cups milk

  • 3 cups chopped fresh chowder clams

Method

  • 1.

    Melt 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) of the butter in a large heavy-bottomed stockpot. Add the onions and cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes, or until translucent. Add the celery, carrots, potatoes, thyme, salt, and pepper and saute for 10 more minutes. Add the clam juice, bring to a boil, and simmer, uncovered, until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

  • 2.

    In a small pot, melt the remaining 8 tablespoons of butter and whisk in the flour. Cook over very low heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Whisk in a cup of the hot broth and then pour this mixture back into the cooked vegetables. Simmer for a few minutes until the broth is thickened.

  • 3.

    Add the milk and clams and heat gently for a few minutes to cook the clams. Taste for salt and pepper. Serve hot.
