Kids in the Kitchen - Clam Chowder

I join forces with my good friend Carrie @YoungLivingOilLady each week
to bring you this family friendly recipe link up. It is our desire to encourage
families to cook and eat together. Meals cooked at home are healthier, and time
spent together in the kitchen is good for families!

We use Cooking 101 as part of our family homeschool. I’m teaching the boys to
put together healthy family meals, life skills, and budgeting, as well as teaching them tips for cooking in the kitchen. We encourage real food vs. processed food. Let’s bring the family, back to the table!

Chop as many potatoes as you have family members, plus an extra couple or three
Chop an onion or 2 (if you really like it) 

Cover potatoes in water plus extra cup and bring to a boil - cook until soft 
Collect small amount of water into a cup or bowl - add a spoonful of corn starch and stir 
Drain most of the water off and add milk to cover food - add bowl of corn starch to pot 
Heat pot slowly - add salt and pepper to taste - do more corn starch in side bowl if needs to thicken
(doing this separately will keep it from clumping) Thicken to your preference

Add pat of butter to skillet - drain large can of clams and add them to skillet with onions 
Stir until translucent and slightly browned 
Add to pot of potatoes and cream - stir until heated
