This chowder was a specialty of Browny's Seafood Broiler in Richmond Beach, just north of Seattle.

  • Yield: 8 servings

  • 2 carrots-medium sized thinly sliced
  • 2 stalk(s) celery thinly sliced
  • 1 onion-small chopped
  • 1/2 small green bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 clove(s) garlic minced or presses
  • 11/2 pound(s) red thin-skinned potatoes scrubbed and diced
  • 2 bottle(s) clam juice (8 oz. each)
  • 8 can(s) chopped clams (61/2 oz each)

Cook bacon in an 8 to 10-quart pan over medium heat until crisp, stirring often. Lift out with a slotted spoon, drain, and set aside. Discard all but 1 tablespoons of the drippings from pan. Add carrots, celery, and onion, bell pepper, and garlic to pan; cook, stirring often, until vegetables are lightly browned (about 10 minutes).

Add potatoes and clam juice to pan. Bring to a boil over high heat; then reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced (about 15 minutes). Stir in clams and their liquid, bay leaf, hot pepper seasoning, pepper, Worcestershire, thyme, half-and-half, and bacon. Season to taste with salt. Heat until steaming, then ladle into bowls. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
