Clam Chowder

10 ingredients

1 C. Onion, finely chopped
1 C. Celery, finely chopped
2 C. Potatoes, finely chopped
2 cans minced clams and juice
¾ C. butter
¾ C. flour
1 qt. half and half cream
1 ½ Tsp. Salt
Pepper to taste
1 tsp. sugar

Drain juice from clams and pour over the vegetables in a very small saucepan. Add just enough water to cover the vegetables and cover the pan. Simmer over medium heat until barely tender. In a separate saucepan, melt the butter and add flour and cream and cook and stir until smooth and thick. Add the un-drained vegetables, clams and salt and pepper and continue to cook until clams are done.
