  • Allow to simmer for a couple of minutes, then add the clams and their broth, and the half & half.

  • NOTE: As with any dairy-based soup, do not allow to boil, or it will separate.
  • This soup tastes even better if made the day before serving, to allow flavors to develop.

Notes

This is my adaptation of a delicious soup offered at a small Italian restaurant in Bradford, VT.
