Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 cans minced clams -- (6.5 ounce)
1 cup minced onion
1 cup diced celery
2 cups cubed potatoes
1 cup diced carrots
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups half-and-half cream
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
ground black pepper to taste

1 Drain juice from clams into a large skillet over the
onions, celery, potatoes and carrots. Add water to cover, and
cook over medium heat until tender.
2 Meanwhile, in a large, heavy saucepan, melt the butter
over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Whisk in
cream and stir constantly until thick and smooth. Stir in
vegetables and clam juice. Heat through, but do not boil.
3 Stir in clams just before serving. If they cook too
much they get tough. When clams are heated through, stir in
vinegar, and season with salt and pepper.

I assume you don't want the Manhattan style? This isn't for the faint of heart:
3 oz shelled clams
3 cups clam broth
4 slices bacon
4 TBL butter
4 cups whipping cream
2 TBL flour
2 medium chopped onions
2 1/2 cups diced raw potatoes
1/4 tsp white pepper
Salt to taste

Drain all juice from clams & strain a couple of times. Grind clam meat.
Cut bacon into 2" pieces & fry with onions until browned. Drain grease & place ground clams into a large soup pot; add enough water to cook potatoes & clams.
When done, add clam juice, cream, bacon/onion mixture & seasonings. Add flour & butter to thicken, if necessary. Simmer gently until ready to serve. Garnish w/chopped chives.~~Of Tide & Thyme
