Nova Scotia Seafood Chowder

November 18, 2008


Here is a classic cold day chowder from our friends up north. Make sure you take off the pot and allow to “ripen” for one hour prior to consuming. This is quite a meal.

3-4 Slices Bacon

3 tbs. Butter

1 Large Onion

1 Stalk Celery

2 Cloves Garlic

2-3 Yukon Gold Potatoes

250 mL Clam Juice

3 c. Milk

4 Bay Leaves

1 lb. Mixed Seafood (Crabmeat. Clams, Fish, etc…..)

1 c. Heavy Cream

Pinch Of Thyme

Cracked Peper/Salt

Fry bacon until brown. Add onions, butter and celery. Give 5 minutes to cook. Add in potatoes, clam juice, bay leaves and milk and bring to low boil. Boil for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low and add seafood. Simmer for one hour. Afterwards allow to cool and “ripen”.
