Top-ranked recipe named "New England Clam Chowder"
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"- Craftyrn
Drain clams and reserve liquid. Add enough water to clam juice to make 3 cups. Put in large soup pot.
Fry bacon in a small skillet.Remove from pan and drain on papertowels.
Save some bacon grease and fry onions.
Peel and dice raw potatoes add them to the pot with the clam juice. Add salt, pepper, and onions.
Simmer until potatoes are tender

Add Wondra to thicken if needed
Geerm 3 months agoVery 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.

Buffy1313 2 years agoMy 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!

rodq 3 years agoLove this and so simple to make. I add extra clams, the more the better.
Firecook85 3 years agoIf 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.
