I skipped the food processing and added some garden tomatoes. I had 12 oz of salt pork I was going to use for a New England Clam Chowder so I used it in this recipe. Great ingredients and directions. Tasty chowder !!! Read More

DELICIOUS. I tweaked and modified a few things based upon what I had on hand, and truth be told, I am also not good at strictly following recipes. One 28-oz can San Marzano tomatoes plus 1/2 a 28-oz can of whole plum tomatoes...two cloves minced garlic, used generous amounts of dried basil and dried parsley, two dried bay leaves, added a gob of butter once done simmering and then some additional salt (I’m a salt-o-holic).

I doubled the recipe because I was sharing with a friend who is going through chemo. We substituted a leek for the celery because it was on hand. I added the juice from the clams with the other liquids and simmered for 10 minutes and then added the 9 cans of clams plus half a pound of shrimp and half a pound of Tilapia to make it more of a seafood chowder. I simmered for 10 more minutes. I added Cajun seasoning at the end to taste for a little kick. Excellent. Read More

I made this up the other night. Not having a food processor I used a whisk to finely chop up the stewed tomatoes and the soup came restaurant quality! Lot of work but well worth the effort! Read More
