- 200 g canned clams, chopped
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup diced celery
- 2 cups diced potatoes
- 1 cup diced carrots
- ¾ cup butter
- ¾ cup flour
- 1 liter of heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
- 1 ½ teaspoons of salt
- ground black pepper to taste
1 Drain the clam juice into a large frying pan onions, celery, potatoes and carrots. Add water to coat completely and simmer until cooked.
2 Meanwhile, in a large, heavy saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Pour in flour and mix until smooth. Cook and stir constantly until thick. Add the vegetable mixture with clam juice. Stew on high heat, but do not boil.
3 Lay the clams before serving. If they are cooked for too long, they become tough. When the clams are heated, mix with vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
