Great taste for a standard soup

"This is a good jumping off starter. I used 2 cups half n half, smoked bacon, 5 cans of 6.5 oz clams (the only size my stores stock), and a bottle of clam juice as well as enough water to make the initial 3 cups of liquid.

We omitted the flour. Yummmm ooo"

Very tasty. I used 3 cups of clam juice instead of water. Also went with more bacon and used 2 cups of cream instead of using milk. Made a chowder that was nice and rich. Good recipe.

Add 3-4 tbs of fresh dill . Use a bottle of clam juice instead of just water and go to 1/2 lb bacon. Delicious

My husband, Mr. Picky-Eater, just had a second bowl! Didn't have any Wondera, so it's not as thick as it could have been. I also plan to add more clams next time. This is definitely a keeper!

Love this and so simple to make. I add extra clams, the more the better.

If available, substitute 4-5lbs of live clams. Boil in pot with 2 cups water until clams open. Strain water twice through fine mesh sieve to remove sand. Use broth in recipe. Also, I add a bay leaf to the cook onion stage. Remove before serving.
