Soup or Chowder for a cold rainy day Tue, 10/23/07 3:49 PM (permalink)
Today is a cold rainy day, after reading the soup threads I decided to head off to the kitchen and make a pot of soup to help with this cold and rainy day.

Seafood Chowder

Chowder Base:

1/4 pound diced salt pork
2 large onions, peeled & chopped
2 leeks, cleaned and sliced
1 rib celery, sliced
1 cup water
2 cups clam juice or fish stock
3 cups potatoes, peeled & diced
1 TBSP parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
1 bay leaf, broken in half
fresh gound pepper

Ingredients to finish Chowder:

1/2 pound bay scallops
1/2 pound firm white fish, cubed
1/2 pound crab meat
3 dozen oysters, coarsely chopped
4 cups light cream
2 TBSP butter

Cook the salt pork in a large soup kettle until the fat is rendered and the pork is crisp

Add onions, leeks, celery and saute 4 minutes

Add the remaining base ingredients, bring to a boil

Reduce heat and simmer covered for 15 minutes, until potatoes are tender

Cool base and chill overnight if possible

Return pot to stove and bring base to a simmer

Add seafood including any oyster liquor and simmer for 3-4 minutes

Add remaining ingredients and cook over low heat until just heated through

Serve Immediately

Serve & Enjoy
