My Mother's Clam Chowder

Recipe by Cadylynn

My favorite recipe for a not-too-clammy clam chowder

Top Review by *Parsley*

Outstanding! There's no fancy ingredients, but the flavor is still outstanding. It's really thick and creamy, too. I added one extra can of clams but made no other changes. Thanx for sharing your mother's clam chowder. It's a big hit!
