Loved it. So quick, easy and tasty. Like other reviewers, we enhanced the flavor by adding a bottle of clam juice, and reducing the amount of cream. We ate this as a main dish by also making it lighter and adding more protein. For the extra protein, add a pound of scallops, shrimp, haddock or cod, or some combination. To lighten the chowder, replace the quart of half-and-half with 2 just cups of whole milk. Also, make it lighter by thickening it with cornstarch dissolved in a bit of water instead of the butter and flour. Add the cornstarch mixture when you add the seafood at the end. Simmer everything a few minutes, then slowly add the broth to the milk to raise the temperature of the milk, before combining everything in the pot, and bringing to a last simmer. I also added 2 packets of Splenda at the end to enhance the natural sweetness of the seafood. You could also do this with a very small quantity of sugar if you prefer. It tasted so good, that I never added the vinegar.
