Yield: Yields 6 to 10 cups diluted broth and 1-1/2 to 2 cups meat
Use this broth as a base for New England, Manhattan, and Rhode Island clam chowders. The amount you’ll get depends on how much liquid is in the clams. After straining the broth, you’ll need to dilute it with water to get a fresh, not-too-salty taste.
