Another recipe from my mom. I've made it for dispatch once or twice and Tracie has requested it a few times!
2 cans chopped clams, with liquid
1 cup onion, chopped (or just dehydrated minced onion)
1 cup celery, sliced
2 cups potatoes, cubed
1 cup carrots, sliced
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 quart half & half cream
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
Use large stockpot. Drain juice from clams and add to veggies. Add enough water to barely cover. Cook uncovered at medium heat until tender, about 15-20 minutes.
In large saucepan, melt butter. Add flour. Add half & half using whisk. It will thicken slightly. Add to undrained veggies. Add seasoning and heat. Will thicken more. Do not boil.
