Clam Chowder

on January 19, 2013

2 c. potatoes, peeled and diced
1 c. celery, diced
1 c. onion, diced (I use less)
2 cans minced clams
1/2 c. margarine
1/2 c. flour
1 qt. half-and-half
salt and pepper

My additions:
a few strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
a little italian seasoning

Place diced vegetables in a large pot and add just enough water to cover them. Drain the clams and add the juice to the pot of vegetables. Cook for about 20 minutes or until tender. While that is cooking, melt margarine in a separate saucepan; add flour and stir to form a paste and cook for a few minutes. Slowly add the cream and mix with a wire whisk until thickened. Stir in the drained clams. Stir cream mixture into pot with vegetables; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until thickened. Do not boil. Stir in some italian seasoning and top with bacon, if adding and serve with saltine crackers or sliced french bread.
