Husband and I agreed that this is the best clam chowder recipe I've tried yet. It was delicious and is still warming my tummy! I noticed there was no salt mentioned in the recipe and it did need quite a bit. I didn't have heavy cream on hand so I used 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2 and 2 cups whole milk along with 3 tablespoons corn starch and 3 of water to make up for it. Those were the only changes. Not a low cal/low fat recipe but that's not what I was going for. It's wonderful. Thank you.
this is really a good chowder used little skin on red creamer potatoes sliced 1/8 in or so goodness what a delicious good looking and relatively easy dish will be making this one a lot thanks EDMISTON99 a real KEEPER
This was a hit!! I will never go back to store bought clam chowder ever again!!
I did make some changes. I actually used 4 cans of smoked clams in oil but drained the oil instead of clams in juice. It gave the chowder a bit of smokiness & I bought a bottle of clam juice separately to make up for the juice the recipe called for. Great, great flavor. I also doubled the recipe since I have family of 6. It was more than enough & so hearty. I used 3 medium potatoes & used the emulsifier to blend some of the mixture for thickness but also keep a chunky texture.
Excellent! I used half and half instead of cream and found this creamy and thick enough. Just as a personal preference, I will omit the basil next time
This is really a good clam chowder recipe. I've tried several of the clam chowder recipes that I've found, and have never found one that I could say was as good as a restaurant's. This one is. In fact, it's better than some restaurant's clam chowders. The best thing about it is that it's really easy to make.
