    This was very good!!! The only thing I added was some garlic. Everyone loved it even my 1 year old.  -  25 Mar 2018


    This chowder is absolutely wonderful. I come from New England and I adore clam chowder - but due to dietary restrictions, I've had to give it up. I honestly thought I'd never get to enjoy another bowl of chowder for the rest of my life, because what could possibly compare? But thanks to this recipe, no more worries! I added about 2 cloves garlic along with the onion, and put in about 1/2 tsp. of pepper rather than 1/8. But otherwise I didn't mess with the recipe. After 20 minutes of simmering, the potatoes were not nearly cooked through. So I covered the pan and let it go for about 10 more minutes. Excellent, excellent recipe!  -  04 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
