This is the most authentic New England Clam Chowder recipe available anywhere.
About this recipe
Boston is one of my favorite travel destinations. It is also the home of the Union Oyster House, the nation's oldest continuously operating eatery (since 1826) – and also famous as Daniel Webster's favorite spot to imbibe copious quantities of fresh oysters on a very regular basis. Clam Chowder is one of their many house specialties. I have had their recipe in my collection for decades. As I recall, it was printed on their menu (or on their napkins). Now, of course, it is available online.
