Clam Chowder

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

Despite hating clams...this really looks delicious! could i make it without the clams?

I guess that might be pretty pointless to make clam chowder without the clams...
