This is a really easy yummy recipe for clam chowder
1 c. celery (diced)
2 c. cubed potatoes
1/2 onion (diced)
Boil the above in water until tender. Add the juice from the clams to the water to help flavor the veggies.
When veggies are almost done:
Melt 1 c. butter and then add 1 c flour and mix together. Add 6 cups of milk and heat until the roux thickens (if it is too thick you can add some more milk to thin out). Add about 2 t salt and 4 t pepper and about 1/2 T of sugar(you can add more or less salt, pepper or sugar per your taste). When veggies are done drain and add to soup. Add 2 cans of drained diced clams. Heat until everything is warm and enjoy!
***Optional****This is a great soup to serve in bread bowls
