    silly sally's Note:

    Smooth, creamy, and OMG so good! This recipe comes from Brattens which used to be located in Salt Lake City, Utah, years ago. It's been gone for years, but this clam chowder lives on. What a legacy! The restaurant gave me the recipe back in the middle 60's.

      Great chowder. Rich and creamy and very easy to prepare. I do think I liked it better before the addition of the vinegar though.

      This was very good. I did make several chages....more veggies, used some whole milk, some fat free and some cream, and we alwasy have bacon in our clam chowder. Very smooth, silky texture and the vinegar, I would never have thought of that! Thanks!
