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!

I added more vegetables and added 1 large can of evaporated skim milk plus 1 cup skim milk (instead of the 3 cups of milk). This was loved by the whole family, and with the extra vegetables, the "thickness" of the soup didn't bother anyone. The problem was there wasn't any left over!
