Let's Make It
Bring water and clams to boil in large saucepan on medium-high heat; cover. Cook 10 to 15 min. or until clams open. Strain clam liquid through a sieve lined with double layer of paper towels or cheesecloth; reserve 1-1/2 cups clam liquid. Remove clams from shells; set aside. Rinse pan. Add bacon; cook until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 Tbsp. drippings in pan. Drain bacon on paper towels; crumble.
Add onions, celery, bell peppers and carrots to reserved bacon drippings in pan; cook 3 to 5 min. or until tender. Stir in reserved clam juice, tomatoes, potatoes, vegetable broth, thyme and ground red pepper. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer on low heat 20 to 25 min. or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir in clams. Return to boil; cook 1 to 2 min. or until heated through. Serve topped with crumbled bacon and parsley.
If clams fail to open after cooking 15 to 20 min., they are not fresh and should be discarded.
Manhattan Clam Chowder is usually made with top neck or cherrystone clams.
Prepare using 2 cans (6 oz. each) clams. Drain clams, reserving juice from can and adding water to make 1-1/2 cups clam liquid.
