Directions:
Render bacon in a stock pot over medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon and set aside. In the bacon fat add potatoes, onion and celery. Cook for 5 minutes stirring often. Remove vegetables and melt butter in the pot. Once the butter has melted add flour to make a roux stirring constantly. When roux is a light brown reduce the heat to low and add the liquid from the clams. Stir trying to scrape up the bits on the bottom of the pan. When the liquid starts to thicken add the clams and vegetables back into the pot along with the light cream and milk. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook over low heat until potatoes are tender.
