With one exception ~ shredding the carrots ~ I pretty much followed the recipe on down & thought this was one of the most flavorful clam chowders I've ever had! Really liked the addition of the carrot & the corn & will be making it again, for sure! Thanks for a great keeper recipe! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]

This was a healthy clam chowder with lots of veggies mixed in. The corn and the carrot made for a nice change from the usual version. I added celery and an extra potato to the soup. I also left out the bacon. Will make again, thank you.

My husband loved this recipe, I enjoyed it as well (5 with minor changes). One thing I left out was the carrots, I felt that they were an odd accompaniment to clam chowder. I have never been crazy about rosemary but still made it with the rosemary and all other ingredients that the recipe called for (I used a very large vidalia onion).
When I make this again, I think I will substitute sliced celery for the carrots and leave out the rosemary, I anticipate this will give me what I'm looking for. The recipe overall is a wonderful from scratch, hearty clam chowder that is pretty quick to put together and full of flavor.
