Rhode Island clam chowder has clear broth. Though less popular than the other two, clear chowders are still served, especially at long-established New England restaurants and hotels, such as those on Block Island, and on the south coast of the state, where tourists favor white chowders and natives prefer the clear.

- 1 large carrot, quartered
- 8 medium potatoes cubed

- 1 half cup clam juice
- 1 can of finely chopped clams
- water to cover
Fill your soup pot halfway with water. Add all chopped vegetables and boil until tender. Bring to a simmer without boiling and add clams 20min before serving.
I think this would be really good with crab, too.
Serve with fresh-baked bread and butter or clamcakes.
