I am going to ask a stupid question. If you are using 2 cans of clam and juice where are you getting the 3 qts of clam juice? When I go to my place at beach and I go to fish market and get my clams and steam and eat and use broth for chowder. But where I live I can get canned clams and bottled juice but you would need a whole lot of those little bottles to make 3 qts.. So I do not have a clue what the people reviewing this recipe are using for that clam juice.. It is a very good recipe I have made it at beach when I had fresh clams and broth...please somebody fill me in. Thanks
I have been looking for a clear broth chowder recipe for awhile. Although this recipe is very good I think it is worth it to note that if you go to your local fish market to get the broth it is absolutely fantastic! The canned/jar variety just doesn't compare. My husband doesn't like bacon so I omitted it. It was still great.
My husband and I love the clear broth clam chowders and go to seafood festivals to enjoy them. This recipe was very close to the the festival servings. I've made it for my family and also took it to a Christmas get-together. It was a hit both times. I'll certainly make it again!
Not bad but the broth needs thickening in my opinion. I used less water; rendered the bacon and put the browned bacon side and saved 1 tablespoon of the shortening to saute the onions carrots and potatoes; then I added the 2 cans of canned clams (I know not the same as the real deal) a bottle of the clam juice and 5 cups of h20. Simmered for 40 minutes; then added the cooked bacon as a garnish. Very yummy. Also made fresh french bread from this site.
This wonderful clam chowder just like my sister Kathleen used to make. She was from Mathews Co. VA right on the Chesapeake Bay. Cook the vegtables with the bacon. I used fresh clams finely ground. Thanks for setting us straight on what real clam chowder is.
