"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."

    My family doesn't rate to many recipes as excellent. Usually their highest rating is a Very Good, but this recipe achieved an excellent from everyone. I serve it regularly during the winter months.

    My husband and I decided this is a keeper! I'm sure whole milk or even 1/2+1/2 would be good but for us 2% was fine. The addition of Old Bay Seasoning kicked it up a notch but it's fine without it.
