New England Clam Chowder

Linda Griffith


Clam Chowder is one of my very favorite things to eat. My husband is not a fan of seafood, so whenever we go out to eat, if available, I get some Clam Chowder. This is an old recipe that I had. It's been years since I made it but it is delicious. I hope you will enjoy it too. As my son used to say when he was little..."It's solicious"
