Ingredients:  
7 pounds cherrystone clams, scrubbed and rinsed
3 cups water
4 strips bacon, finely chopped

2 Tbps. flour
3 large red potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch dice
1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
2 Tbps. chopped parsley
1 cup heavy cream

Directions:
Directions:
In a large soup pot over high heat, add clams to 3 cups water. Bring to a boil and cook just until clams open, about 10 minutes. Remove clams from broth and set aside (Discard any clams that don't open.) Strain broth through a sieve lined with a coffee filter and set aside.

Clean your soup pot; then over medium high heat, saute bacon until it's browned and fat is rendered. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon to a paper towel. Discard all but 2 T of bacon fat. Add diced onion to the pot and saute until translucent.

Stir in flour and cook 1 minute, being careful not to brown. Whisk in reserved clam broth. Add potatoes and thyme, and simmer 10 minutes.

Remove clams from shells, reserving liquid and chop roughly. Strain liquid; then add clams and liquid to the pot. Stir in parsley and cream and cook just long enough to heat clams through, about 3 minutes.
