I know I've posted a recipe for Ocracoke Island clam chowder in the past, but I've been hankering for some again recently, so I am posting another recipe. This is how my Aunt Leevella made her chowder:
1 quart clams (medium ground or chopped)
3 medium potatoes, cubed small
1 onion cut fine
2 slices salt pork (cut in cubes)
2 quarts water
salt to taste
Fry out pork til brown. Add clams and onion and water. Cook about 1 1/2 hours, then add potatoes; cook another 1 1/2 hours on very low heat.
It's good some!
