Stir in correct amount of broth (clam cooking water plus additional water, if needed); simmer, covered, 1 hour. Add potatoes and simmer 15 minutes. Add clams and simmer another 8 minutes. Adjust seasonings if necessary. Portion into large bowls, sprinkling a small dash of fresh parsley on top of each one. Serve your Manhattan clam chowder with buttered soup crackers.
