"This is a large amount of clam chowder good for parties or dinners. It's good served with oyster crackers, hard crust breads, or in sourdough bread bowls."

I made this recipe on the 4th for a party and it was very good. I felt it needed a little more stock. I went to another party the next day so I made a few changes in the recipe and it was OUTSTANDING! The best I've ever had! I added 9 cups of potatoes intead of 5, used 1 cup butter instead of 1-1/2,used half and half instead of heavy cream, substituted one quart of the water with clam juice, added 1 tbl. thyme, and ommitted the carrots.
Everyone loved it. Within an hour, the whole pot of chowder had been eaten.
I didn't change anything and now I wish I had. This barely tasted like clam chowder to me - it was nice and thick and creamy but I felt it lacked a clam taste. If I made this again I would use clam juice in place of the water (or at least l/2 juice and l/2 water). Also, this makes a LOT of soup.
This is one of the thickest, creamiest, BEST clam chowder recipes we have ever tried! I did, however, use bottled clam juice instead of the water that was called for. Probably not the healthiest soup with all that heavy cream, but the taste is wonderful.
Lucky strike! on this one with KELLE11' 7/8/2002 modifications. OUTSTANDING! heres a couple more changes too. I used Pacific Razor clams I dug at Longbeach, WA the month before. 24 ozs of clams only wt. 8-10 slices bacon ( dont over cook);clam nectar + h2o= 2qts;3-4 Tbls. minced parsley; 1 Tbls blk. pepper & 1+1/2 Tbls. Worshchester.
I'd never made clam chowder before; this was a huge success with my family! I'll make it often. It does take a little time to do all the chopping, but it is well worth the effort!
My teenager 'signed' me up to bring a homemade soup to a Cheerleading dish-to pass. I chose this recipe and it was delicious! Very creamy and excellent tasting! I did 'adjust' this recipe, as I cooked it in my crock-pot and was taking my crock-pot to the school. So,
I used 5 cans of clams, 16 ozs. Water, an 8oz bottle of clam juice, 1 quart of Heavy Cream, 1 Cup of Butter, and 1 Cup of Flour and all the other ingredients listed in the recipe. The only reason I reduced the liquids and clams was because of the size of my crock-pot.
If you use this recipe for a dish-to-pass, you will receive many compliments!!
four of my friends tasted this recipe, and everyone of them raved about it and want the recipe. excellent flavor
My family loves this. It can be a little too rich for some people, but we think it's great!!!!!!
