Yummy Razor Clam Recipes

Here are some of our tried and loved Family Recipes that include Razor Clams

½ lb. Bacon, diced
1 C finely chopped onions
1 C chopped celery
2 C diced potatoes
2 C water, salted
2 C fresh ground clams
¼ C butter

First, sauté onion and bacon until bacon is crisp. Stir often so the onions don’t burn. When bacon is done, set aside. Cook the celery, potatoes, and clams in the salted water until tender. Add bacon mix. Add 2-3 cans of evaporated milk and heat until hot. Add the butter, along with salt and pepper to taste.

* If using canned clams, wait until the celery and potatoes are tender, then add the clams and water to mix. Stir milk in last.
* If the soup is too water, it can be thicken with a little bit of cornstarch/water paste.
* This recipe also makes great potato chowder, just omit the clams.
