Recipe by mollypaul

If you really want to be truly authentic, soak some hardtack or pilot crackers in cold milk and add to soup just before serving. If you don't have access to fresh clams, please feel free to use canned ones. From the New England chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947
