    Andi of Longmeadow Farm's Note:

    We are so lucky to have this wonderful grocery store here in Maryland. Saw this recipe on the back of Wegmans 5 pound potato sack, and had to try it. I found it delicious, and perfect for a warm Sunday dinner, or anytime during the week for that matter. I had everything on hand, so that made it even easier. *Note* -- any changes I made or mentioned are noted in the ( ) area. I hope you enjoy this, as much as we do on the farm. Now if I can just figure out how to grow clams!

      Clam chowder is one of my DH's favorites. I made this using 1 cup of clam juice and 1 cup of chicken stock. The potatoes were red skinned and 1 used 2 largish and they were broken up a bit at the end of cooking to thicken the soup. I used a combination of evaporated milk and 1% milk. The soup was garnished with sliced green onions. Delicious! Made for the Diabetic Forums event *Soups On*

      This was really good chowda. I "played" with the recipe slightly. I added one rib of celery chopped, an extra potato, doubled up on the chicken stock and increased the milk (used half & half) to 12 oz.. and a pat of butter. I also thickened it slightly with cornstarch. These changes (served with bread) made our dinner wonderful & warm and filled dh's belly! Made for Everyday Holiday Tag-Jan'10,
