New England Clam Chowder

This is one of my favorite "cold days" meal. My mom got this recipe from her step-dad, who is from the East Coast, so I consider this a pretty legit recipe! The celery makes this recipe taste so fresh and delicious.

What You Need:
3 Cans Clam Chowder
2 Bottles Clam Juice
4 Stalks of Celery
4 Potatoes
1/2 Onion
3 cups water
1 cup Cream
1 cup Milk
1 Stick of Butter
1 cup Corn Starch
Handful of Pepper (or to taste)
1 Chicken Bullion Cube (or to taste)

Step One: Chop your veggies and pour into a large pot with the water. You'll want the celery to be cut into crescents, the onion into small cubes and the potato into larger cubes. Cook on high until veggies are tender.

Step Two: Once the veggies are cooked, add cream, milk, clam juice and clams. Cook on high for a few moments and still well. 
Step Three: Add the bullion cube, pepper, butter and corn starch. Stir and let cook for about five minutes on medium heat.

 Step Four: Taste test! Make sure you have enough pepper or chicken bullion to your liking! 

Serve and enjoy!
