  • New England Clam Chowder

    New England Clam Chowder

    This is the classic version of this soup and is very similiar to the one served at Emeril's New Orleans Fish House in Las Vegas. It has a deep clam flavor and is brothy and light. The main thickener in this chowder is potato. If you like your chowder to have more body just mash a few of the potatoes against the side of the pot as you are cooking the soup.

    Purple Hull Peas

    Frozen purple hull peas should be a mainstay in your freezer so that when fresh are unavailable, you can have them on hand to make this delicious and easy dish. You don't have to use the ham hock if you want to cut down on time. Simmer the peas with chicken or vegetable broth and a sprig of fresh thyme instead. Add rice, cornbread, and two shots of hot sauce and you have a meal!
