    Derf's Note:

    Best ever, lots of clams!! lots of flavor! Recipe can be cut in half. If you would like to make this chowder really special, I have made it adding clams in the shell and mussels in the shell, with pealed prawns added at the very end, did this for Christmas Eve, served with cranberry scones, Delicious!

      This is soooo good Dorothy. Just the way my grandmother used to make. The chowder turned out very rich and creamy. I just used a little extra clam juice to get the right consistency as we like ours a little thick. This was very heartwarming and a comfort food for me. Thanks

      This chowder is absolutely perfect!! I made it in my crockpot for dinner Halloween night and it makes for a very comforting bowl of chowder. The recipe was very simple but the flavors where fantastic. Serviced with a side salad & crust bread. Thanks Dorothy!

      This was very good and very easy - full of clams and the chicken stock makes the flavor richer. Thanks!
