2 cups boiling water
2 (4 oz.) cans clams with liquid minced
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 quart whole milk
2 tablespoons butter
a dash of dill weed

  • Place several pieces of paper towel on a large microwave safe dish, add bacon slice and cover with paper towel. Cook until bacon is crisp, or fry bacon in frying pan, discarding fat. Cut cooled bacon into small pieces and set aside.
  • Add a small amount of butter in a large pan add onions, celery and garlic cook until tender (remove any garlic pieces).
  • Add potatoes, water, clams (with liquid), salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Add crisp bacon bits, milk, butter, dill and heat gently, not allowing soup to boil. One half of this recipe will yield 5 cups of soup.
