      Excellent chowder! I didn't want a chowder thickened with a lot of flour or with a lot of cream and this recipe was perfect. I tried the trick of pureeing some of the clams and it really did add to the flavour and added some body to the soup as well. The only change I made was to use chicken broth instead of boullion and water, and to add a diced, large carrot.Lovely, light chowder. Thank you, Sage.

      I wanted to taste a bowl as soon as I made it today, even though it's recommended to wait 24 hours. It was so good I had to have a second bowl! Can't wait to have another tomorrow..... Delicious seasoning, and full of onion, celery and bacon goodness, too. It was a little thin, but I didn't thicken it further until I see if it thickens overnight. Thanks for sharing a real winner.
