Clam Chowder on a cold day, Yum!

This is creamy and delicious. If I don't have enough cream, I substitute with milk.

Clam Chowder

2 8-ounce bottles clam juice
3 cans chopped clams
2-3 large baking potatoes, peeled and well chopped
½ cup butter
1 large onion, minced
¾ cup flour
1 ½ cups heavy cream
1 ½ cups milk
salt & pepper

Sauté onion in butter in a large pot. When onion is browning, add flour and cook 2-4 minutes.
Add clams and juice to the pot and bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, boil potatoes until just tender.
Add cooked potatoes to the clam pot when it is boiling.
Reduce to simmer and add milk and cream. Season to your liking with salt and pepper.
Serve hot with bread or crackers.
Serves 4-6
