FAQs?

Can we make the clam chowder before time?

Yes, you can be prepared a day before the actual day. Store it in the fridge and then simmer it for some time before serving. In this way, you can save your time when you are cooking a couple of dishes at the same time.

Do you purposely thicken your chowder?

Yes, it can be thickened if it is too runny or you want to reduce liquid from it. You can add corn starch or flour to the chowder to make it thick. A thickened chowder is far better I guess.
