Clam Chowder

This is one of my mom's recipes. I can remember having this as a little girl. It's my favorite clam chowder recipe, and it's pretty simple to make. It takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, and it's so yummy!

2 cans chopped clams
1 C. Chopped Celery
1 C. Chopped Onions
2 C. Chopped Potatoes
1 1/2 cubes butter
3/4 C. flour
5-6 C. Milk
Salt & Pepper

Place Chopped vegetables in a sauce pan drain clam juice into pan, add just enough water to cover vegetables, cook until soft.
Melt butter in large pot, add flour to butter and mix together (mixture should be thick). Add milk a little at a time stirring after each addition until mixture is smooth. cook until mixture thickens and boils. Add vegetables with water they were cooked in. Add salt and Pepper to taste, then add clams and serve warm.
