I grew up on Oyster "stew". I like to "create" new things and this is what I came up with. I fix this for myself only and so I made it how I like it, and this is the result. Hope you like it.

    OMG I'm just finishing it all off, I'm glad I was cooking for myself. Used Bluff Oyster's A NZ oyster and it was unreal. Will be doing again when I have a hot date around for dinner! :-)

    This recipe was very very good. We doubled the recipe and also added some old bay seasoning as well. We will make this again but next time I think I will subsitute the oysters for crab meat.

    I do not care for oysters, but my wife loves anthing made with oysters. I made this as a surprise for her when she came home after a long day at work. She now thinks I am a genius. I did not have whole canned cron so I used 1/2 can of Delmonte white crushed corn. DW took th remaining chowder to work to show co-workers how good it was.

    This chowder has that oyster stew taste! I used an 8 oz. can of oysters (Orleans brand). I added 1 clove of garlic with the onions and potatoes plus 1/4 teaspoon each of salt, pepper and old bay seasoning. I used 1 ear of silver queen corn (cut off the cob)because that was all I had on hand. Used 1/4 cup water since I did't have corn juice. Mine turned out alittle thick for my liking, so I added about 1/4 cup extra milk. My only complaint was I did't double the recipe! Thanks for posting.
