      Very good for a cold winter's night! We loved it! I followed the instructions exactly, but the soup never thickened at all, was very watery (no biggie, but thought I'd mention it). I made the whole recipe & we each had one big bowl. There is plenty left over. Next time, I'll halve the recipe for the two of us. (Meanwhile, we're going to eat it for dinner again tonight!) We had it with salad and sourdough garlic bread - yum!

      It was not difficult to make once you get organized. And, boy was this good.

      My husband said this was the best clam chowder he's ever eaten. And he's picky about his clam chowder. Loved the bacon flavor and the clam juice made it full of seafood flavor - more than recipes with just milk! I only used 3 cans of clams and it was plenty. Will definitely make again and again!! Delicious.
