"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."

Very tasty, easy, and my husband loved it. I would reduce the amount of milk and add a bit of cornstarch next time to make it a thicker consistency. I could probably whip this up again in ten minutes (not including boil time).

Pretty basic but very good recipe. I added celery, finely chopped red and green bell pepper and a couple of cloves of garlic. For thickener, I added some mashed potato powder I had laying around. Came out great.

I also added celery, garlic, old bay seasoning and dill to the soup but since I made just a bit more i decided to add a can of tuna! Superb!

Very good recipe. Reminds me of the clam chowder my mom used to make. Used frozen clams we harvested from the coast last year. This recipe is a keeper and will definitely make again.2

Excellent recipe. My mother grew up with a tradition of having Clam Chowder on Christmas Eve and she always wants some this time of year. This is the best chowder recipe we've had in years. Thanks.
