This is a thin, simple chowder which reminds me of my summertime favorite on Cape Cod.

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook onions in melted butter until clear, 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir heavy cream into the mixture; add clams. Continue cooking until the clams are warmed, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

This was great. I did add celery and thyme, but the best part of this recipe is no flour or cornstarch to make it thick and, well, floury. Thanks so much!

Unimpressed. Took a LOT of cornstarch to get some texture and added bacon to get any flavor. And why would you drain the cans of clams and then add bottled clam juice? Clam juice is expensive!

I made this tonight and it was excellent! So easy too. I so substituted 1% milk for cream to cut back in fat and sugar (my husband is diabetic) and used some corn starch to thicken it. He absolutely loved it. I willddefinitely be making this again.
