"While vacationing in the New England states, we enjoyed a delicious clam chowder," recalls Rosann McWherter of Dublin, California. "When I go home, I wanted to savor the same flavor in the least amount of time. That's how this shortcut was born."
Chopping the clams into tiny pieces adds big flavor to this full-bodied chowder from Betty Lineaweaver. “Everyone says it's the best they've ever tasted,” she writes from her Paradise, California home. “I like to serve it with garlic bread or a side salad.”
"I tried for years to re-create a popular clam chowder from a local restaurant," recalls Kathleen Buenemann of New Haven, Missouri. "Then I met the cook and got the recipe. I couldn't believe how simple it was to prepare this rich, creamy and filling soup."
