Cape Cod Clam Chowder
This New England classic is well-loved by our family."Excellent, this is going in my recipe notebook. Been looking for a good basic clam chowder recipe. I added bottled clam juice instead of the water and 1/2 cup finely chopped celery and omitted the Worcestershire sauce ( I do not like) and substituted fresh nutmeg. Will definitely make again." - sunnygal
