The above recipe is wrong, wrong, wrong.
Here is the correct recipe:
Peel and dice potatoes, rinse off starch and boil potato peices until nearly 
done (i.e. slight crunch)
dice onion and fry with bacon that has been cut into small pieces. Fry until 
translucent.
Add milk and potato pieces and bring to a simmer with some butter added (maybe 
a tablespoon full)
Thicken with flour or corn starch dissolved in some more milk (flour is better)
Salt and pepper to taste.

For a real wild seafood experience toss in a couple of cans of diced clams but 
don't try to pass this off as Clam Chowder or you will start an uprising among 
the New England natives (However let's face it; this really is Clam Chowder)
Finally, you can jazz it up (appearance-wise) 
with some bottled Parsely flakes.

For really good soup add diced ham with the potatoes and also you can
add sour cream after you add the milk.  Super!!
