Free Recipe "Asparagus Clam Chowder" Yummy!
Greetings and Salivatations from a snow buried Wisconsin! As the photo to the right shows we have started winter early here in Eau Claire. The 6 to 8 inches caught everyone in the north woods by total surprise. City and County workers in Eau Claire county deserve a big hand for the quick response and fast cleanup of streets and highways around town.
Ok with that said I do not have any great food news to report since the weather has left me trapped indoors for much of the time so, I dug out the recipe books and whipped up some old time winter favorites. Along with the snow came some subzero temperatures so some good hot soup sounded fairly appealing. My asparagus clam chowder now that just sounds warm and scrumptious...And it was! Here is the recipe:
1-1/2 cups asparagus cuts and tips, (1lb bundle Fresh)
1 medium potato, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 sprig parsley, chopped
1 can 6 oz. minced clams with juice
2 cups milk
3 Tbsp. butter
Season and cook potato's with asparagus and onion until tender. Add chopped clams and juice, simmer for 5 minutes. Add milk and butter, heat to just below boiling point and serve. You can substitute chopped baby scallops for clams for a different taste, I like to add both.
This really hit the spot after coming in from the subzero temps outdoors. For more delicious food recipes check out the Free Recipe Library. The Amish recipes here are old time favorites of mine but the free holiday recipes are delicious as well. Till next time happy holidays!
