Hey /ck/

So I made some clam chowder (first time.) It was breddy gud, I steamed the clams to open them first then put them in right at the end. I only got a pound and a half littleneck clams I think it needed more tho.

It was pretty tasty with sourdough roll.

Also I put red wine vinegar to liven it up. Anyone else do this? I thought I could taste vinegar, not bad could detect it tho. Did I too much or how much of any RWV does anyone use in their chowder?

Any clam chowder tips welcome.

seasoning with vinegar/acids is very common. A few drops is all you need; like salt, if you taste it then you added too much. It's there to enhance flavor not add flavor.

Okay thanks, I'll go easier next time. I was sortof following a recipe but I think was too generous.

Also I went rogue and put some garlic in, like 3-4 cloves. Didn't see it in any recipes but thought what the hey. Is this a clam chowder no-no ?

Thanks for replies.

The only critique I'd offer and based solely from the pic is it looks like you used too much mirepoix and particularly too much celery. A good rule of thumb is 2x as much carrots and onions as celery rather than thirds. Too much celery tends to dominate and taste 'vegetal' IMO. Garlic is a nice touch, personally would have used 1 clove, but it's a matter of preference. Here's a good recipe for a nicely spun traditional NE clam chowder: http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1016717-the-best-clam-chowder
That said: looks good op, wouldnosh/10. Got me craving a chowdah
