Clam Chowder
Liberty Tree Tavern
Magic Kingdom


Yield: 3/4 gallon


1/2 cup salad oil
1/2 cup celery (1/4" dice)
1/2 cup onion (1/4" dice)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 qt. clam juice
1 qt. milk
1 cup potatoes (peeled, diced, and cooked)
1 1/2 cups chopped clams
1/2 tsp. salt
pinch white pepper
1/4 tsp. ground thyme


In a sauce pot over medium heat, saute the celery and onions in oil. Add flour to make the roux. In a separate pot, heat clam juice and milk together until they simmer. Combine roux and hot liquid slowly to prevent lumps. Add clams, potatoes and seasonings to soup. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve. Soup can be made up to three days in advance.
