Mix liquids and butter, add potatoes and onions, and cook until done. Mix cracker crumbs, flour and seasonings. Add to potato and onion mixture. Add red and green peppers, mix well, bring to a boil, add cream and corn, and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

  1. Hi there,

    I am from South Africa and had your chowder a couple of years ago.

    Is the clam juice a necessity? Can it be substituted for something else or be omitted.

    It is awesome chowder

    1. Hi Elizabeth! You can omit the clam juice and it will be fine. It is a small amount, but does add a little flavor. Anyone who can’t have seafood simply leaves it out. We hope you enjoy making it!
