Family Fish Chowder

6 sl Bacon -- 1/4" thick
3 c Diced yellow onions
6 md Potatoes -- peeled
1 lb Haddock
1 lb Cod
2 cn Evaporated milk -- (3 cups)
1 c Whole milk
Salt
Freshly ground pepper


Fry the bacon, remove from the pan, and place on a paper towel. Saute the onions in the bacon fat and set the pan aside. Cut the potatoes in half the long way, then into 1/4" slices. Put them in a nonreactive pot large enough for the chowder. Cover the potatoes with water and boil until tender. Becareful not to put in too much water or the chowder will be soupy. While the potatoes are cooking, cut the fish into generous bite-sized pieces. When the potatoes are ready, add the fish to the pot, cover and simmer until the fish flakes. When the fish is done, crumble the bacon and add it to the pot along with the onions and any grease in the pan, the evaporated and whole milks. Bring the mixture to boil, cover, and turn the heat down. Simmer for five minutes and add salt and pper to taste. Chowder invariably tastes better when made a day ahead.
