“A creamy, very chunky, satisfying chowder. This soup is made in the slow cooker, but no reason why you couldn't cook it stove top following the same sequence. The recipe calls for just clams and juice, but I also toss in 3-4 ounces of fish and/or seafood if it is might have to add a bit of extra liquid if it is too thick. I also use cut up turkey bacon instead of pork bacon for even lower fat. Freezes well.”
