Manhattan Clam Chowder




  1. Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes.
  2. Drain the bacon on paper towels.
  3. Crumble the bacon into a slow cooker.
  4. Discard the bacon drippings, leaving about 1 teaspoon in the skillet.
  5. Sauté the celery and onions in the bacon drippings in the same skillet until golden, 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. Transfer the onion mixture to the slow cooker.
  7. Stir in the potatoes, carrots, thyme, pepper and hot sauce.
  8. Drain the liquid from the clams into a pint measuring cup. Add enough water to it to make 2 cups of liquid.
  9. Add the clam liquid water mixture - not the clams - to the slow cooker. Stir in the tomatoes.
  10. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 6 hours.
  11. During the last hour of cooking, stir in the minced clams.
  12. Cover and cook for 1 hour.
  13. Stir in the parsley and cook for 15 minutes.
