Crockpot Clam Chowder Soup Recipes

Clam chowder is usually made in a pot rather than in a slow cooker, but if you want to cook something tasty because you are planning to be out all day and back late, this recipe is a real winner. You will need a can each of celery soup, potato soup, New England style clam chowder, and some Half & Half and whipping cream. Parsley adds an herbal flavor and you can also add a couple of chopped potatoes if you want more texture.

This is not a low-fat recipe but it is a rich, creamy dish which must be savored. You can serve it just as it is or you can steam a few fresh clams and add those at the end. Serve this with crackers or bread for soaking up the lovely juices. This is a winter warmer of a dish but too good to save only for the winter. Why not enjoy this on a warm summer evening too? Clam chowder soup recipes certainly make a change from summer salads.

Do not attempt to cook the fresh clams in the crockpot. They need to be cooked in or steamed over hot liquid for five or ten minutes or until they open up, for the best flavor and texture. They would cook too slowly in the crockpot and end up tough and stringy. The canned ones are fine in there though, since they are already cooked. Crockpot clam chowder is perfect if you want your dinner ready as soon as you get home.
