    This is the recipe my mom always made. It's very easy to make. I'm really picky with my clam chowder and I don't usually like any other than this!

      This was delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I modified slightly to my taste by decreasing the onion quantity and I substituted 2% milk for the cream to cut the calories. It was smooth, thick, and very creamy.

      This recipe was a hit! I have tried many clam chowder recipes and this was definitely my favorite. The only thing I changed was to add a pinch of dried thyme. I love the thick, creamy texture that only comes from a roux. Thank you for sharing!

      This clam chowder is super thick and rich.....and I even used fat free half and half! Thanx for sharing your mom's recipe. Please let her know that we LOVED it! All the ingredients are in just the right proportion. I had 16 oz of fresh chopped clams from the seafood department that I used for this. I was very pleased and will make this again.
