Very nice soup, savory, and tasty but somewhat light and refreshing. If you love miso you may appreciate this one.
I love New England Clam Chowder but can't bring myself to make it at home without cringing at the amounts of creme and butter.
I have two kids who do love soup so I omitted salt, pepper, Cayenne and hot sauce. Those I put on the table and allow the adults to adjust as needed.The canned clams have a LOT of salt already, adults might want to resist the urge to oversalt as well.
Used three stalks of celery, 4 bay leaves, tablespoon of dried thyme. I found thyme to be mentioned several times in other versions of this recipe and I favor thyme in almost all saucy, coupy dishes. Forgot to add parsley too. No dill
Very good soup with the perfect ratio of solids to soup, small amount of richness visible from top. Potatos are soft and fall aparty, clams firm and slightly chewy, celery and onion transluscent and disappears on tongue. Soup itself is slightly briney but has the freshness of the celery to clean up any yucky taste.
