 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    Dozen large hard clams,
                         -chopped, and juice
      1/4   lb           Salt pork, chopped (**or
                         -bacon)
    1                    Onion, chopped
    1       c            Cubed potatoes
    1                    Carrot, sliced
   16       oz           Can tomatoes
      1/2   ts           Salt (optional)
      1/4   ts           Pepper
    2       c            Hot water (**clam juice
                         -makes it better)
    1       t            Thyme
 
   Brown pork: add onion and, when yellow, add potatoes,
   carrots, canned whole tomatoes and salt, pepper and
   water. Boil until potatoes and carrots are done.  Add
   clams, thyme, and juice. Serves 6.
   
   **My notes:  I use celery too sometimes.  The amounts
   don't really matter. I use lots of my home canned
   tomatoes, sometimes even fresh. The tomatoes and thyme
   along with lots of clams are what makes it taste right.
