My search for homemade Clam Chowder is over!!! This is a keeper and pretty close to the best we have had! We like black pepper in Clam Chowder and I added it to taste while soup was cooking.

Husband had 3 bowls and licked the ladle. Think that says it all. ;) Loved the texture and creaminess, and had just the right amount of clams in every bite. Made me miss my summers on Cape Cod when i was a kid. A real keeper of a recipe!

My 9 year old son chose this recipe after spending quite a bit of time looking. He was so excited to try the chowder "he chose". I have to say, WOW! It was amazing and very very easy. Thank you so much for this. It will frequent our dinner table often.

This recipe was fantastic and very easy! I added a few extra baby yellow potatoes chopped and cooked, and also a little bit of pepper, thyme and sage for seasoning. Will absolutely make again.
