"Real Clam Chowder made with real ingredients. It is important to reserve the clams and add them for just the last ten minutes, to just warm through and not over cook." Inspired by ellenmoriah's blog on Allrecipes.

Instructions
  1. In a soup pot melt butter over low to medium heat, add onion, shallots and celery. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until just soft but not browning about 5 minutes. Sprinkle flour over vegetables and cook an additional 5 minutes until flour starts to smell like pastry, do not brown flour.
  2. Add clam juice and stir to form a smooth paste, add cold milk and stir until smooth.
  3. Add bay leaves, sherry, diced red potatoes and thyme. Drain Clams, add clam juice to pot and reserve the clams. Simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Taste and adjust salt and pepper.
  4. Once potatoes are tender, add reserved clams, simmer for an additional ten minutes. Remove bay leaves & stalks of thyme, if you used fresh thyme.
  5. Serve with a crusty bread.
Recipe Notes

I used to follow 'ellenmoriah' on Allrecipes.  She was fighting breast cancer, I think for the fourth time.  She gave a great deal of thought to each of her recipes, this recipe for Clam Chowder was a work in progress.  She was trying to re-create the very best clam chowder she had ever had.  I do believe this was the last blog of hers that I read on AR.
