Crockpot Clam Chowder Recipe
Submitted by: Nikki, MA
I love New England clam chowder and love making it myself because most places do not make it as good. I usually prefer fresh clams since I am from the coast and it taste so much better than canned ones. However for those people who do not have easy, cheap access to clams, this recipe uses canned ones and a lot of celery as well.
