To be clear I am reviewing the Clam Base and NOT the seller of it here. The seller shipped this to me in the middle of summer over the course of a week. Needless to say I dumped it when I received because it was not handled safely. Amazon was amazing though, they REFUNDED my money immediatly, I was so impressed!!!!!! I didn't even ask for a refund. THANK YOU AMAZON!!!I used this base for years in the restaurants I worked at, and in Colorado you cannot buy it in a store. You have to buy it from a wholesaler and that is if you have a commercial account. So I found it on Amazon. Anyway, back to the product. It's made with REAL clams and seafood/fish. It is an excellent base for ANY fish or seafood dish you choose, NO MSG!!! I make Clam Chowder, sauteed shrimp, I marinade fish and seafood for two hours with a teaspoon of this base, then grill it. It is amazing! PLEASE be carefull if you use it as it is salty, so you will most likely NOT need any additional salt.

Not many years ago, one could purchase "clam juice" in large cans for a reasonable price. Unfortunately this is no longer the case. Clamato juice has also become quite hard to find and rather expensive. Since my favorite adult beverage in the summer is a "clamdigger", urgent action was needed. This product can be reconstituted, a tsp per 1 c. very hot water, made up in advance and kept in the fridge. It makes a reasonable substitute for probably a tenth the price. Just make sure family members know it is not lemonade as it sort of looks like it :)

Ready to do the job, a very nice quality clam base, that adds a third dimension to any culinary creation. If used correctly, not too much or too little, this product adds the missing element to any seafood dish a cook would care to use it in. Been using Minor's for the last 10 years, and this clam base is almost vital for its presence to be in refrigerator. I think that Minor's Soup Bases are the best in the industry, and even though I have tried several other brands, at the end of the day Minor's is the one. Great clam chowder, clam sauce, seafood chowder, seafood fried rice, everyone in our home likes the results. 4.5 Stars!

Good base, Unfortunately, after Nestle bought Minor in 1986, the bases seem to have become thinner and less potent (less gallons of stock per pound of base). They used to be gritty but have gradually become like thick molasses. The price also has skyrocketed. My father was a gourmet chef and I knew about Minor's bases and saw how my father used them before I was a teenager. These aren't the old Minor's bases that built the product's reputation, but they are still better than the others. I use them because they are still the best products on the market. I give them 5 stars in comparison with other products on the market today, but 3 stars for comparison with the Minor's of 1986. Average: 4 stars.

I love to make Boston clam chowder, and this base helps me to meet the expectations for fresh clam taste, even though the clams that are accessible to me are frozen.
