From The Cliff House in Ogunquit, Maine, is this wonderful, glorious clam chowder! It is smooth and velvety, and will warm you to the bone! This recipe is so worth making! Even in the desert, where I live it gets cold, and I made this to warm everyone up and it definately did the trick! This is a definate keeper! I hope you will enjoy! The spice blend can be uses for so many things, I make about a triple recipe, and it keeps well in either a zip bag or a container with a tight-fitting lid. Note: If you get all of your ingredients together before you begin, the cooking part is a snap!
