      This was the best clam chowder ever! Me and my husband absolutely love it. I am really picky about clam chowder and I have to say this is the best I have ever had. Thanks for the recipe.

      Clam Chowder is a favorite of DH. This made a wonderful dinner plus leftovers for lunch. I will admit that I didn't allow for the standing time; however, it was still very good. The recipe was reduced by about half and I got 3 to 4 nice servings. Made for *PAC Fall 2008*
