Recipe for New England clam and corn chowder

Serves 6

To a basic recipe for New England clam chowder, add bacon for smokiness, leeks and corn for sweetness, and of course, plenty of briny fresh clams. Steam the clams first to make a delicious clam broth that will serve as the base, then cook potatoes and corn in the clammy broth, and add chopped clams, cream, and parsley. This is supper at the beach, and offers everything you could possibly want in one bowl.
