      I also thought I would miss the potatoes, but I was wrong...this was absolutely delightful. I coarsely chopped the bacon and the clams to make the chowder a little chunkier. The end result was a very delicious soup! Thanks for sharing!

      This traditional clam chowder rocks Lavender Lynn. It was awesome, simply awesome, made exactly as written. My very picky dh loved it. He said it tasted like his moms, minus the potatoes. Very high praise indeed. It was wonderful, smooth and silky, with a lovely delicate flavor, the clams were center stage. We enjoyed it very much. Thank you so much for sharing this tasty treat with us. Made for my very talented Pac baby.
