    Delicious and easy recipe. The whole family liked it. I didn’t have half&half, so I used 2/3 milk and 1/3 cream. I also added extra broth in the end to make it thinner. It makes 8 portions for sure.

    Very yummy. I put 4 cans of clams in. Just to make sure it is full of clams. I have recommended this recipe to several people. Always a winner. I wanted to give it 5:stars but the program wouldn’t let me.

    Absolutely incredible. As good or better than any restaurant. But DO NOT drain any liquid off of the vegetables when they are done or it will be too thick. Very clammy. Most chowders are thin and it’s hard to find a clam. Not this one. But it does make a lot. You might want to freeze some.

    Delicious! I doubled the recipe and it turned out great. Creamy but not too thick. I omitted the carrots.

    I strained the canned clams through a fine mesh coffee strainer to remove any grit. I had to thin the chowder with water as it was way too thick. I used full cream, not half and half. I also omitted the vinegar. Delicious. This is a keeper recipe and very easy to make. .

    Super tasty! I had to make some changes because I’m abroad and couldn’t find everything, but it still came out great. I wanted to make a dish that was typical of New England for my wife and her family here in Chile and this was a huge success. Just like back home 😋

    Very good and nice bc there is not the bacon fat typical of clam chowders. Used skim milk and apple cider vinegar instead to lighten it. Also did not use clams but instead added canned oysters. Delicious.

    I made and followed recipe exactly - I added leeks that I had on hand as well. This is delish! Will make again...I'd even contemplate fresh clams.
