Simply the Best New England Clam Chowder

Simply the Best New England Clam Chowder uses Gourmet Chopped Sea Clams, which features its great piece identity and robust juice flavor. True chowder traditionalists prefer thin brothy milk chowder served with crackers to allow the patrons to make it as thick or thin as they like.


Drain juice from clams into a soup pot, add everything else except clams and half & half. Cook until potatoes are soft. Add clams and half & half and simmer for 20 minutes.
