Clam Chowder

Take 1 qt. of clams and chop them fine. Fry two slices of salt pork in an iron pot. When the fat is fried out, take the brittle out, put into the fat 2 slices of onion, then a layer of sliced potatoes, then a layer of chopped clams, sprinkle well with salt and pepper, then a layer of onion, then the bits of fried pork, cut into small pieces, add a layer of broken crackers. Do this until all is used. Then add the clam liquor and enough water to cover. Cook 20 minutes. Add 2 cups of hot milk just before serving. Use for this 6 large crackers, 1 onion, 6 potatoes, 1 qt. clams.
