Oh my! Currently, this chowdah (sorry, I’m from Massachusetts) is what we eat all day during Christmas. It keeps well on the stove and is so easy to devour. You will love how easy this is and how amazingly flavorful it can be (even with water as part of the broth, I was worried at first). You simply must see the notes on this recipe and I promise that you’ll be amazed at how perfect the small addition of fresh lemon zest is to each bowl of chowder!

Notes
Feel free to add different kinds of seafood like shrimp or crab[br][br]Ditch the heavy cream if you’re worried about calories and use skim milk, you can also substitute the butter with extra virgin olive oil[br][br]I used two cans of chopped clams in their juice (BumbleBee brand)[br][br]I put a little bit of fresh lemon zest in the bowl before I put the chowder in it to serve to others, this is the freshest way, I’m weary of adding citris to the actual chowder[br][br]Peel the potatoes if you do not like the skin[br][br]The clam juice I used was also BumbleBee brand and found near the choppped clams[br][br]Fresh dill would go nicely at the end
