    LisaA's Note:

    I've had this recipe for three years. If I remember right the person who gave it to me said it came from a newspaper article from Seattle Washington. I love this recipe. Just be careful not to make this when you're really tired. Worst cooking disaster was misreading 1/2 tea sugar for 1/2 cup. Talk about yuck! Cooking and prep time is just a guess. It's been a good year since I made this last.

      I used 4 cans of clams and more salt. It tastes too buttery. I don't think it needs half & half with 3/4 cup of butter. It went down the disposal.

      As written we thought this was bland and didn't even taste like clam chowder. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I love thick chowder but this tasted almost pasty to me. I did add four more cans of clams and a lot more pepper and salt. We liked it much better with the changes.

      To start, this makes a lot, at least 8 servings. Made recipe as instructed (except I only had 2c half & half so I used 2 c milk & 2 c Fat Free Half & Half. I also felt it needed more clams, so I doubled the clams as another reviewer suggested and doubled the sugar as well. I may have put too much water (to cover the vegs) and felt that more seasoning was required. I added a bit of chicken base (would've used clam juice if I had it) and a lot more pepper. Very nice recipe with the suggestions mentioned. Thanks for posting!
