Mom's Clam Chowder

Mom's Clam Chowder created by Parsley

My Mom ran a little restaurant in a bank building and her soups were the best. The most popular one by far was this clam chowder. The only changes I made were to add more clams than she did. I also wait to add the whole milk until the end, because I like mine thicker and that way you can control the thickness to your taste. Enjoy!

    Your Mom has a wonderful recipe here! I made this according to the recipe, using fat free half & half. As mentioned in the intro, I waited to add the milk. I didn't use a whole quart, so it would stay on the thicker side. The carrot added a nice color and sweetness to the chowder. Thanx for sharing!
