I hope to say that someday, but I do like Select clam chowder.
Being from MA, I suspect you have a pretty good recipe for that, too. Probably starts with; grab your bucket and clam shovel....

As much as I used to love clam chowder, I can no longer eat it as I have a severe allergy to clams.

That stinks.
My father is allergic to all shell fish. Happened when he was around 65 or so, he's 83 now. He can't eat a French fry that has been fried in the same oil as shrimp...
I hope that never happens to me.

BTW.... I added way too much barley.....

[QUOTEIt does absorb liquid][/QUOTE]

It sure does. I like a really thick barley soup, so the 1st time I made it, I added the whole bag of barley. I ended up with a pot of barley cement.

Well then you'd like this, Loprraine.

Barley. It's what's for dinner.

That stuff is just plain nasty. All their chunky beef, sirloin, whatever soups have the same nasty taste to them. It will be nice to make my own soups and freeze them once I get the hang of it.

Gee, I love the stuff.

Aside from the chowder, I think I only like one other flavor of Chunky.... one of their chicken soups, but since I don't remember which one I like, I never buy them
It seems like there's some flavor that's really overbearing in their soups, to me anyway. The chicken soups have their flavor, the beef theirs, their corn chowder or split pea is like eating liquid smoke....

Obviously they are selling them to more than NFL stars' mothers, though.

I have no idea, but it didn't taste half bad. I had forgotten how much I love barley. Thank you.
