Having traveled extensively through New England and living on Long Island, NY, I've had my share of New England Clam Chowder and can honestly say that this came out excellent. I made one minor change, namely adding some thinly sliced celery with the potatoes and onions. I also didn't drain the clams (the recipe didn't specify whether to drain or not, so I won't call this a change) because at first the mixture seemed a little thick. After adding the Half & Half I decided to reduce the liquid by letting it simmer a little longer, which turned out to be an excellent idea. The clam flavor remained while the water evaporated. It didn't do the potatoes much harm either, they stayed quite chunky. Served with some crusty Ciabatta bread, this made for a quick and wonderfully warming winter meal.
