This is my family's favorite soup for fall. With it's creamy texture and quick prep time, it's a mid week busy night winner! I add some fresh sourdough bread and have no problems getting everybody together around the dinner table!

Ingredients

1 c
onion, finely chopped
1 c
celery, finely chopped
3 can(s)
(6-1/2 oz) minced clams
3/4 c
butter beans
3/4 c
flour
1 pt
half-and-half
1 pt
milk
1-1/2 Tbsp
salt
1/2 Tbsp
pepper
1 Tbsp
wine vinegar
2 c
potatoes, finely chopped

Step-By-Step

1Place all veggies in medium saucepan. Drain juice from clams and pour clams over veggies.
2Add enough water to barely cover veggies and simmer. Cook over medium heat until potatoes are fork tender. (About 20 minutes)
3In meantime, melt butter. Add flour and blend. Cook one or two minutes over medium heat so that flour doesn't taste raw.
4Add half-and-half and milk. Cook and stir until smooth and creamy. Use whisk to blend. Continue stirring until soup is thickened.
5Add vegetables and clams (water too!) to the soup. Add seasonings to taste. Lastly add vinegar.
6Heat thoroughly and enjoy!
