1/4 pound diced bacon 1/4 cup butter 2 medium onions 2 large carrots 2 stalks celery 1/4 cup flour 2 cans baby clams 1 cup clam juice 3 large potatoes 2 cups milk 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
Dice all vegetables. Drain clams and save juice (if there isn't enough you can use bottled juice). Fry bacon in a large pot, add butter, add onions, carrots and celery; saute until tender. Add flour and cook for 2 minutes without browning. Add remaining ingredients, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
