EXCELLENT Chowder!! I have made this twice so far. I did cut the liquid back by about half, maybe a little less. Served at a dinner party for 8 people as a first course & everyone raved.


This is an excellent recipe. Also is an excellent base for fish chowder. Add your own favorite seafoods for variation.


Wow- I was VERY disappointed with this recipe. First of all, since the vegetables (including the potatoes) were "minced" it really lacked the chunky vegetables usually associated with a chowder. Secondly, there was very little flavor, even though I added additional clam juice, cayenne pepper, and salt & pepper. The broth also seemed to seperate, making a very odd consistency. My husband, who found & was looking forward to the recipe, ordered a pizza.
