REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating

This is a delicious recipe! It's heavy on potatoes so if you like a more "clamy" chowder, reduce the potato and increase the clams. You could also substitute some of the water with clam juice if you wish. Instead of adding cornstarch, I used heavy cream instead of the half and half and slightly mashed some of the potatoes to thicken it.

This NE Clam Chowder would rival Cape Cod's finest! I, too, substituted heavy cream for the half and half and used 1 cup of the drained clam juice in place of 1 cup of the water. Also used more clams and less potato. Fabulous!!!

I made this clam chowder while camping over Memorial Day Weekend. What a hit, even the kids were eating it - it was delicious and I highly recommend it!!
