Reviews forManhattan Clam Chowder
"Good soup! I followed the recipe exactly."
"Glad to see no bacon. The butter definitely makes up for that. I subbed sage and bay for the thyme, replaced potatoes with red bell pepper and added a bit of Old Bay seasoning (I am from Maryland, btw). It was very delicious. Table side, served it with crusty bread and home-made hot sauce. Thanks for sharing!!!"
"will make it again everyone loved it Thank you"
"Manhattan clam chowder is rare find in stores or restaurants in my hometown and vicinity when I do find it I love it. But this recipe is better than any where I have found dinning out. Try it if your a fan of this style of chowder."
"This recipe was very good. I put it in the crock pot and let it simmer all day. It was a little watery. I think next time if I use the crock pot, I will use half the amount of water."
