Very rich and creamy, this is the recipe my mom made over the years. Mom did not use the wine vinegar but did add 1/2 teaspoon sugar. Notes: Two cans minced clams will replace the one pound, and 3/4 cup flour should be listed as an ingredient only once. Also, four ounces additional clam juice will provide this chowder with needed flavor.
