I am the original poster of this recipe and since posting this I, too, have made some changes to thicken the soup up. I now 2 to 3 cans of New England Clam Chowder and 2 to 3 cans of Cream of Potato soup. I also add 4 cans of the minced clams. This is still the best Clam Chowder I have ever tasted!!!! Enjoy!!!!


Living on the Oregon Coast you would think that there is good clam chowder here? Anyone heard of Moe's? This is even better than Moe's!! This recipe is the BEST that I have had in YEARS and YEARS. Talk about easy and cheap. I used fresh clams out of the Yaquina Bay that we dug. Since there is not a lot of juice I added about 1/4 cup of clam juice (sold in stores with tuna), half an onion, 2 small potatoes, 1t of ground cumin, and cooked for 9 hours. I used the heaven sent Wondra flour product to thicken to our liking! THANK YOU for such a GREAT recipe! Everyone should try it!


I served this to my family on Christmas Eve and received rave reviews! I doubled the recipe and cooked it in my crockpot on high for 2 hours and then on low for 3 hours. I used 5 small cans of chopped clams with all the juice, 1 qt. half & half and 1 pt. of heavy whipping cream, 2 bags of precooked, chopped red skin potatoes, 1/4 cup chopped onion and also added approximately 1/3 cup of good sherry wine right before serving. Decadent!!! Thanks Deena for sharing this fabulous recipe!
