    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This recipe took me several years to perfect and it has been enjoyed by everyone who like clam chowder, even those who did not like it previously. By puree'ing the tomatoes, you would hardly know that tomatoes were used.

      I've made this twice. The first time, I made the entire recipe. Wha a big pot of soup! LOL Tonight, I made 1/4th of the recipe. It was "souper"! :) I only changed two things to suit my own taste. 1/4th calls for 3 cups of water. I used 2. 1/4th calls for 7 oz clams. I doubled that. One thing I've learned from prior experiences, "taste" the bottled clam juice that you plan to use before you use it. There are some good ones and some really bad ones. I use 'Doxsee All-Natural Clam Juice'. Thanks for posting this, Bill, and thanks for all your assistance!
