Clam Chowder (my husbands)

Carol Junkins


My husband got this recipe from a wonderful man we had look after our Cape house when we went away. What a wonderful man he was, kind to all, he used to run a little general store , delivered meals to the needy, and his wife was in a wheelchair and his daughter was blind from birth. Very active in his church as well, may never meet such a person like this in your whole life! We were honored to have known him.
