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,

We really enjoyed this. Some changes I made were to puree half of the soup. It gave it a creamy base but you still had great chunks of potato. I also used skim or 1% milk. I garnished with the bacon (it stays crisp that way) and chopped green onions. My husband liked it so much and even said it didnt need the clams! Thanks!!

Oh my dear Andi, I just knew this would be a winner. This is the first time I've ever made homemade clam chowder, one of my favortites and this was super easy and tasted rich and wonderful even though it wasn't loaded with fat and calories. Okay my "changes" I used about 2t of olive oil instead of bacon drippings. Then added 1/4 c bacon bits to the potatoes and onions. I used 1 c. clam juice and 1 c water. and then I used 1 12 oz can fat-free evaporated milk instead of whole milk. Very good and warmed us up on a cold rainy afternoon.

This is soooo quick and soooo delicious! The clams I bought were "minced", but still tasty. Love the addition of the thyme, Andi. Wonderful lunch on Feb. 4th-National Soup Day! Made for Holiday tag and for Nat'l Clam Chowder Day, too.

Delicious and warming! I used fresh thyme and chicken stock. I can't wait to try this really simple formula using fresh clams and the broth resulting from Bergy's Garlic Steamed Clams. Thanks, Andi!

I am a huge Wegmans fan, and I love all of the recipes that I normally find there. Ths one was no diffrent. I used some low fat turkey bacon and used skim milk to lighten it up a tad. Not using whole milk made this a bit thin so I added some cornstarch water slurry mixture to the finished soup to thicken it up a tad. Great comforting recipe for this rainy day!

This is delicious! I had a large, thicker than usual piece of prosciutto left over and fried it instead of bacon. I used clam juice and a can of whole baby clams. This was really quick and easy! Made for Fall 2007 PAC.
