Thank you for that recipe. I do believe I'm going to try that. Last time I had that soup I opted for their roast beef sandwich and it paired really well with that soup.

I forget that "steamers" are a New England thing. They are soft shell or Ipswich clams that are preferred over hard shell clams for steaming in New England. Even though I am in Fl. I can still order 5 lbs. through a local fish market. The left over clams are combined with the broth and traditional chowder ingredients to make a nice sweet chowder. Don't forget to take the neck skin off and strain the sand out of the broth.

Actually, the hard shell Quahogs are excellent for steaming as well. Littlenecks and Cherrystones are great for eating raw on the half shell. They are also really good just steamed with drawn butter...I ate a gross (144) one evening on Cape Cod.  These are just small varieties of Quahogs. I think they also make for better chowders than the soft shells. Now the soft shells or Ipswich (also know as whole bellies, and piss clams) are fantastic steamed, rinsed in their broth and dipped in butter. It's a toss up with me whether I like them steamed or fried better. Clams are about my favorite food. Check out this website!

If you'll let your steamer clams sit in a bucket of water with corn meal on the bottom for 12 hours they'll get rid of their sand on their own and you'll have steamers with corn meal in their bellies.
 
But the real question is, what's a leftover steamer?

When I lived on Cape Cod we always used salt or sea water with the corn meal to purge...you can make a comparable sea/salt water with about 3 oz. sea or kosher salt per gallon NOT iodized salt...be sure to swirl and mix well. Good tip.
Back to the real question....is it one of those steel mesh thingies you put in the bottom of a sauce pan to reheat leftovers?

I think it's the same as leftover lobster.

When I was a kid I thought I invented the whole corn meal to purge sand thing. I'd never heard of it, and no one I knew ever heard of it. I'd head out to the sand bars each day and fill a couple of buckets with clams and bring them back to the cottage where I'd pour corn meal in the buckets. It wasn't until fairly recently that I learned people had been doing it forever. Of course, I'd never heard the term whole-belly till I saw it here on Roadfood. We just called them clams because the whole thing was the all we knew..

He didn't invent the corn meal purge but he did invent something unique.  Apparently one day there was no corn meal so he used OATMEAL!  I don't think it worked so very well.......

Now just one darned minute. That happened about 17 years ago. We were on our way back to Ohio from Connecticut and stopped in Westbrook to pick up some steamers to take with us. After we got the clams I stopped at the first grocery store I came to and they didn't have any corn meal so I thought I could at least use the oatmeal they did have to get rid of the sand. I figured that when we got home I could use corn meal to purge the oatmeal. Trouble was, when we got back to Ohio I forgot I'd used oatmeal. But you're right. It didn't work very well.
 
I never should have told you about that.

So, what did you do with the leftover oatmeal?

I sure would love to learn how to make the black bean soup they serve at Panera Bread. Had some in Jacksonville and just can't get over it. Tried some in a can from Progresso and it was ca-ca.

I love all the soups at Panera. But I must say, I am totally addicted to their broccoli cheddar soup. I had a big bowl for lunch again today.

MellowRoast - I haven't tried that one. And I doubt I would. It's just not the type of soup that appeals to me, personally. I just can't get away from the broccoli cheddar.

Eager to hear what you think of it. Have it with the baguette. Be sure you tell them to warm the baguette.

MellowRoast - The Turkey Chili actually looks very hearty on their website. I'll try it one day. The New England Clam Chowder looks good too on Fridays soups.

Ten-four on the baguette, thanks for the tip.  Not long ago they had a beef brisket chili, but I didn't know until it was already off the menu.

I had to scratch my head for this one....." Creamy Vegetarian (?) Tomato Soup. If I'm missing something here please tell me. Any tomato soup I've ever had didn't have any animal protein products in it.

Maybe it was made with vegetable stock instead of chicken stock?

Good point....most recipes I've seen for tomato soup call for chicken stock, but vegetable would work. (not for me)

Well, seems one is never to old to learn something. Never occurred to me about the chicken stock.  Thanks SC.

Brisketboy, that soup could be lacto-ovo vegetarian -- for those who include dairy and egg in their diet, but no other animal products.  Or, the recipe could call for almond or soy milk or soy cream instead of real dairy.
However, hard as it is to believe, I know "vegetarians" who eat fish, seafood, chicken, and turkey.  Strange, but true.

One of my best friends in England is not a vegetarian. He just does not eat any four legged animal protein. He eats exactly what you mentioned above. Fish, seafood, chicken, and turkey.

I lived in a few of the Hawaiian Islands and was a total pescatarian (fish/seafood only) for the entire time. Then I moved to Texas.....

Twinwillow, I agree that's not a vegetarian, but I know people who insist it's vegetarian.   I bite my lip to keep from laughing.

I agree with you. My vision of a "vegetarian" is totally different.
 
In case anyone is interested, I found this recipe for Panera's (delicious) broccoli cheddar soup.

We have several personnel here who are vegetarian/vegan and varying degrees in between. Please correct me if I'm wrong but as I understand the term vegetarian, it is a person that will not eat flesh of any kind. This includes chicken and fish. Yet we have one person who says they are vegetarian but will eat fish. Her comment, fish is not meat. I say it is. The vegan is just that, no animal products of any kind. Period. I'm good with it. It's the former I take issue with. Anyone else see it that way? Just sayin'.
