The best recipes are always the simplest and this is my favorite for chowder. It features classic easy-to find ingredients: It''s a cinch to make, and best of all --it tastes great!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, saute bacon until brown and crispy. Pour off 1/2 the fat. Add the onion, carrots,celery, thyme and parsley and saute for about 3 minutes (or until softened). Add tomatoes, tomato paste and garlic, cook for 2 minutes. Add wine and clam nectar. Bring to a boil. Add the potatoes, reduce heat, and simmer for about 10 minute or until potatoes are tender. Stir in clams and cook for a few more minutes (to heat the clams). Serve with nice crusty rolls.

Great clam chowder!! Very easy. Made just as written and I think next time I make this I will add some pepper. Oh, and this makes a TON, so there are plenty of leftovers. Thanks for sharing!
