Reviews for Slow-Cooked Manhattan Clam Chowder
"I'm not a big fan of this soup to begin with but my boyfriend is and when he smelled the soup I was a hard time to keep him away from the slow cooker before the soup was even done!"
"This was very good clam chowder. I add the clams at the very end, though, so that they stay plump. I always add an extra can of clams. Never enough clams, as far as I'm concerned. Yum!"
"great chowder. I stirred in some leftover white rice and it was very good."
"A great soup to come home to on a cold day!"
