****



Gluten Free, Dairy Free Allergen Free Clam Chowder (New England Style)
(this makes about 2 quarts)
1 Can of SeaWatch Brand Chopped Sea Clams ( I used there huge can from Costco, 51 oz.) (Reserve the Clam Juice!)
1 8oz. Bottle of Clam Juice I used (Snow's all natural)
2 Bacon Slices, minced
1 medium Onion
2 Stalks of Celery cut into uniformed pieces
3Tab of My gluten Free Fool Proof Mix (either one of mine will work)
2 Bay Leaves
1/2 tsp of Fresh Thyme Leaves
1 pound of potatoes, peeled and minced
2 Cups of Coconut Milk (Like Silk or So Delicious)
1 Can of Coconut Milk (I like to use this along with the milk from the carton for the thicker cream and more of a nuttier coconut taste )
( to Note if allergic to Coconut use your milk of choice it may need to be thickened up a wee bit more at the end ).

6 tablespoons of Dry Sherry (or adjust to your taste, if you don't want to use alcohol leave it out)
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Franks Red Hot Sauce or Tabasco to Taste
Gluten Free Worcestershire Sauce ( I use wizards brand Organic GF/CF Vegan Worcestershire)

To Prepare:
Drain the Clam Juice into a measuring cup or bowl and the bottle of Clam Juice It should equal out to 4 cups if i recall correctly lol ....

Cook the mixed Bacon in your soup pot, on medium heat until lightly crisped, about 8 min.
Add the Onion and Celery and cook stirring occasionally until the onions are translucent , about 5 to 7 min. Add the gluten free Flour Mix and cook over low heat, stirring with a wooden soup for 3to4 min.

Whisk in the Clam Juice, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 min, dont forget to stir occasionally. The Liquid should start to thicken up , add the bay leaf and the fresh thyme.

Add the potatoes and simmer until tender around 15 min or so.

Meanwhile place the clams and the coconut milks, in a saucepan on low heat for about 5-8 min.

When the potatoes are tender add the clams and coconut mixture, simmer on med low or med for 1-2 min, DO NOT BOIL!
*If the Mixture is not think enough for you, then just add a Tab of cornstarch or arrowroot with 5 tab of COLD water and stir into the chowder, should thicken up allot more for you! :D

Stir in the Sherry if using, Season to taste with salt and pepper, and if using Tabasco or franks red hot sauce and the Worcestershire Sauce . Serve and Enjoy.
*Another tip let your guests use the hot sauce and Worcestershire at the table so they can use what they like in the chowder!
