  Categories: Home Cookin,
       Yield: 4
       1 c  chopped Onion
       1 c  chopped Celery
       2 c  chopped Potatoes
       3    6-oz cans minced clams
     1/2 lb bacon - approximately 1/2
            to 1/4 pound
  ------    BASIC WHITE SAUCE---------
     3/4 c  olive oil
     3/4 c  flour
     1/2 ts Salt
       4 c  milk
     Drain liquid from minced clams over vegetables, and if
   necessary, add
     enough water to just cover vegetables.  Simmer until vegetables
   are tender.  Sauté bacon, and add to vegetables.  Add clams;
   then add white sauce.
   Heat oil in heavy skillet.  Add flour and salt.  Stir quickly
   until  smooth.  Remove from heat and add the milk at once,
   stirring constantly to eliminate any lumps.  You may need a whisk.
   Return to heat.  As sauce begins to come to a boil, the mixture
   will thicken.
    Remove from heat when it is the desired consistency.
