    anni's Note:

    My husband and I love soups and chowders. This is one of my husband's favorites. Originally from a magazine clipping, I've "futzed" around with it until it suits our tastes. It makes one Dutch oven full and the servings depend on how much you eat. I usually eat one bowl and my husband finishes off the rest. (He loves it!) Start to finish it takes less than an hour to make.

      This is outstanding, by far my favorite New England Clam Chowder!! The only change I made was using 3 - 4 slices of diced bacon (and using it's grease) instead of the salt pork, because it's hard to find in the stores here. Thank you, anni, for a new favorite on Friday nights!
