Classic Seafood Clam Chowder
"Add up to 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) chopped carrots, red bell pepper or corn kernels with onion for extra colour and nutrition. Turn this into chicken chowder: replace dill with thyme and stir in 2 cups (500 mL) diced cooked chicken in place of fish. For the Adventurous: Omit butter and add 3 slices bacon, chopped, and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) hot pepper flakes with onion. Add 2 lbs (1 kg) scrubbed mussels or clams in the shell in place of the fish and cook until shells have opened. Discard any that do not open."
