Directions:
In one large fry pan melt half the stick of butter. Add finely chopped garlic. Add chopped oinion and let them sweat. Add chopped potatoes and chicken stock. Cover fry pan with heat on low.

In a second 4 quart pot melt the other half of the stick of butter. Add 1/4 cup of milk. Add flour while stirring it in until it looks like chowder broth (I've been told this is a rue). Once the rue has been made add the frozen clams to the mix and let them melt in the mix. As the frozen clams melt, break the cooked clams off the edge and keep rotating the block of frozen clams until the block has melted away. Add salt and pepper.

Combine the fry pan contents into the pot. Cook on low for 20 minutes or until potatoes have fully cooked.
