I have always made my clam chowder on top of the stove, but I am trying to add to the delicious slow cooker soups I love for busy days.

Since I’m now a “working mom” (aren’t all moms?) who still homeschools yet is physically home everyday, I adore having recipes that draw me in with their warmth and the smell of love brewing!

Ingredients
  1. 6 slices of cooked bacon, chopped
  2. 1 onion, chopped
  3. 3 small carrots, chopped
  4. 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  5. 2 6.5-oz. cans minced clams
  6. 1 3/4 cups water
  7. 1/2 cup clam juice and water combined
  8. 1 tsp worcestership sauce
  9. 1/2 tsp salt
  10. 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  11. 2 12-oz cans evaporated milk
Instructions
  1. Pour drained clam liquid into measuring cup and add enough water to make 1/2 cup total. Pour into slow cooker.
  2. Add 1 3/4 cup water, onion, carrots, potatoes, bacon and salt to slow cooker.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 6 hours or until potatoes are soft.
  4. Combine flour and 1/2 cup of evaporated milk and mix well with a whisk to dissolve lumps.
  5. Add to slow cooker along with reserved clams and remaining milk.
  6. Stir, cover and cook on high 30 minutes more or until reaching desired consistency.
Notes
  1. If you like bacon, add more. If you're health conscious leave it off! I used turkey bacon.
  2. You can always substitute half and half or milk for the evaporated milk, which changes the thickness slightly.
  3. I refrigerate the clams until needed.

  1. It looks yummy! Too bad I can’t run out for the ingredients, as that would entail being able to get out of the driveway!

    • Did you manage to survive Pax? How many days of school were cancelled, Kirby? My kids were getting over being sick so they really only had Friday in the snow but they’re teenagers and they’ll live!

  2. oh my.. make some snow-cream for dessert.
    This is a classic recipe that works really well because the sweetened condensed milk is thick and helps hold quickly melting snow together.
    1 gallon or big bowl of clean snow (if you like, you can put the bowl outdoors to collect it as it falls)
    1 14-oz can of sweetened condensed milk
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    Mix the ingredients together and eat the snow ice cream.

    • Hi, Hariette. We had already made our snow cream (which my kids weren’t crazy about) but next time we’ll definitely try condensed milk. You can’t go wrong there! Thanks for visiting Marty’s Musings.
