The annoying part: peeling, chopping onions (3 smallish: 1 yellow, 2 red) and potatoes (like 12 lol)
The rest is really easy and satisfying, you just boil milk and dump in the clams n juice n stuff :]
(I don't do the steaming clams, I just used 2 cans of baby clams (and juice), and a whole lil bottle of clam juice.)

Bit potatoey and I didn't blend it enough for Shelley. Could do with less potato maybe? She seemed to think it was fine.

Added quite a bit of salt and some MSG. Served with bread.

Made the recipe again today, with Yukon gold potatoes and maybe a few less of 'em. Still turned out awesome. I blended it a little more to make it extra smooth. Made enough for a meal today & at least two days of generous leftovers. It was nice getting onions and potatoes out of the way, knowing they're the worst part.

Bit expensive. Like $10 for all the clam shit, and another $3 for the huge sweet onion I used.
