“This is 'Hatteras style.' I work in a restaurant near the North Carolina coast and make this two times a week. I have scaled down the batch for home use. It is very simple. You can also use the bacon grease to saute the vegetables in. ”

I am going to ask a stupid question. If you are using 2 cans of clam and juice, where are you getting the 3 qts of clam juice? When I go to my place at beach and I go to fish market and get my clams and steam and eat and use broth for chowder. But where I live I can get canned clams and bottled juice but you would need a whole lot of those little bottles to make 3 qts.. So I do not have a clue what the people reviewing this recipe are using for that clam juice.. It is a very good recipe, I have made it at beach when I had fresh clams and broth...please somebody fill me in. Thanks



I love this recipe! Hatteras Style Clam Chowder is the only chowder I will eat! I am mot a fan a milk/cream based soups, this recipe is the best on a cold winter day!



I have been looking for a clear broth chowder recipe for awhile. Although this recipe is very good, I think it is worth it to note that if you go to your local fish market to get the broth, it is absolutely fantastic! The canned/jar variety just doesn't compare. My husband doesn't like bacon, so I omitted it. It was still great.
