Clam Chowder Even The Kids Will Eat

My kids love cream based soups. Even though it is summer we still manage to eat this every few weeks.

Clam Chowder

1 C Chopped Onions
1 C Chopped Celery
2 C Diced Potatoes
2 Cans Minced Clams

¾ C Butter or Margarine
¾ C Flour

4 C Milk
1 ½ t Salt
Pepper to taste
2 T red wine vinegar or lemon juice

Drain juice from clams and pour over vegetables in a saucepan. Add enough water just to cover. Simmer, covered over medium heat until tender.

In the meantime, melt butter, add four and blend. Cook, stirring constantly. Add milk and cook, stirring with a wire wisk until smooth and thick. Add un-drained vegetables, calms and vinegar. Heat through.
