Manhattan Style Clam Chowder in the crock pot

Jane McMillan-Whittaker Recipe

By Jane McMillan-Whittaker janenov46

I have been making this for years along with the New England style of clam chowder.
Unlike the creamy base of New England style chowder, the Manhattan style has a tomato base, is very tasty, and a pronounced clam flavor.
