How to Make Ivar’s Clam Chowder Seattle Step by Step:

 Step 1: Take out a medium saucepan, and drain juice from 6 ½ ounce of minced clams. Set them aside. 

Step 2: In that saucepan, add 1 cup of chopped white onion, 1 cup of diced celery, and 2 cups of diced potatoes.

Step 3: Fill up with water so that the water barely touches the top. 

Step 4: Cover the saucepan with lid, and keep the heat on medium flame, until the potatoes are tender enough. It takes not more than 20 minutes. 

Step 5: Take out another large saucepan, and melt ¾ cups of butter, or ¾ cups of margarine. 

Step 6: Add ¾ cup of self-rising flour in 4 batches, making crumble. 

Step 7: Then, pour 4 cups of warm half-n-half slowly. Keep whisking until they completely melt with prepared flour. 

Step 8: Cook it for 5 minutes or until the chowder is smooth and thick. If you desire a thinner chowder, then add almost ½ cup to ¾ cup of water or clam broth. 

Step 9: Add the cooked vegetables with the sauce. 

Step 10: Season with 1 tsp of Kosher salt, ½ tbsp. of sugar, and 1 dash of pepper to the saucepan. 

Stir in, and add seasoning if needed. Transfer to a serving bowl, and enjoy the dish.
