    Grannydragon's Note:

    Jasper White is famous for Chowders. He has published a cookbook of just chowders. This is the pot of chowder served at our house our way, mostly on cold winter nights. It has none of the glue of flour, so is quite good for gluten-intolerant folks.

      Really great clam chowder. It's not super thick, but it's got loads of flavor. I made this just as it is written, but added 2 more cans of clams - just my personal preference. I had fresh parsley so I opted for that over the dried. This reheats very well. Thanx!

      This is my new favorite Chowder recipe. I followed the recipe closely but had to refrain from the use of a couple items due to allergies but it was still the best I've ever cooked. Using the thick cut style bacon and that nifty starch release idea, instead of flour, this was truly a very busy chowder with every spoonful and amazingly flavorful.

      I made two pots of this tonight. The first one I used your spices, the second one I used chipotle powder, allspice a little Worcestershire and thyme. Both were fantastic, I think this was the best chowder I have ever tasted in my life! I love that it wasn't thickened with flour or tons of heavy cream. I used a potato masher to mash up the potatoes a bit since I found the spoon to be tedious.
