Wife Jan wanted something to go with the soda bread I was making. She decided that I had not made clam chowder in quite a while. One reason for that was that daughter Eilene has become a bit lactose intolerant. The obvious solution was to make Manhattan clam chowder.

She does not mind a little pork in her clams as a flavoring, but in her mind it is all about the clams.
