Great, did not have any celery so used a can of cream of celery soup, also used bacon and cheddar potatoes. Thanks for the easy recipe.

OH MY GOSH! THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY! So easy and full of flavor. I did saute the vegies in bacon fat and add thyme and a pinch of red pepper. Also used one small can chicken gravy instead of stock. Next time I'm going to use ham instead of clams. This is a great base that can take the leftovers in your fridge...anywhere.
