    My favourite clam chowder recipe. Not much to get in the way of the clams except for some potatoes, cream and butter. Sometimes, austere simplicity is the only way to go.

      this is probably the purist version of clam chowder . i wound up adding a bottle of clam juice, a cup of fish stock , and other ingredients which probably made this more of my own recipe than yours, sorry. my family thought this was bland so i had to add ingredients to make them happy.

      This was a very easy recipe to help me use up some of the razorback clams that my brother brought back from a recent clamming trip. I doubled the amounts of cream, as well as butter (I just like things a little more soupy!), and added celery and carrot. Both the hubby and I finished the whole pot in one sitting..oops!

      Ireally liked this clam chowder. It's really loaded with clams and it's easy to make. I loved the idea of lightly mashing the potatoes.... it thickens the soup nicely without having to mess with making a roux. I did add some chopped onion for extra flavor. I used fat free half and half. It isn't the most flavorful clam chowder, but it will satisfy your craving for clam chowder when you're in a hurry. Thanx ev!
