      A great and tasty clam chowder. I only made 1/2 of the recipe for a lunch. I added some extra onion and only went with 1/4 cup of wine. Prepared as a participant of the Aus/NZ Swap #38 March 2010.

      I made this according to the directions, but it just didn't come out well for me. I think there was too much thyme for us. Thank you for sharing though.

      I pretty much followed this recipe down the line, with one exception ~ I cut the amount of bacon back to 4 slices ('cause that's what I usually do, either cut back on the bacon or eliminate it)! STILL, the taste of this clam chowder is really great, & I'm willing to add the recipe to my soup book! Thanks so much!
