Rhode Island Red Clam Chowder

Rated as 3.94 out of 5 Stars

"How can a New Englander love Manhattan over New England clam chowder? Because I like to taste the clams, not just heavy cream with lumps. I came up with this recipe today using what I had on hand, but feel free to improvise. This tastes just like the chowder you get at the beach with clam cakes! When reheating, do not boil or it will 'rubberize' the clams."

  1. Pour clam juice, and the juice from the canned clams into a large pot. Bring to a boil. Add onion, carrots, and potatoes; and simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes, or until tender. Stir in the tomato soup and tomato sauce, and season with parsley and black pepper. Add clams last, and cook just until heated through.

Yum... This was great and very easy. I much prefer Red clam chowder over it's white counterpart. It's much healthier for you, too!!! I added a pinch of basil and oregano to mine for a little...

This recipe was fantastic. I swapped half of the carrots for celery—which I recommend to all. I'd like to take issue with the few negative reviews. I grew up in RI (1957) and have had red chowd...

Actually, in addition to the clear chowder served in Rhode Island, there is indeed a tomato-based chowder that has long been a RI tradition/favorite -- what we call "Rocky Point Clam Chowder." E...

I submitted this recipe about 10 years ago. I continue to make it often. I live a weak stone's throw from the RI border. Forgive me for not knowing that RI's chowder is clear, as I have never...

Loved this. I think it is very close to Rocky Point's Clam Chowder, Does anyone out there have a 'from scratch' recipe for the "Clam Cakes" that go with it? I sure do miss the Rocky Point Dinner...
