INSTRUCTIONS
  • Place all vegetables into a large skillet, add clam juice from all cans, top with water to cover the vegetables, and cook, covered, over medium heat until tender.
  • Add butter to a large, heavy saucepan, let melt over medium heat. Whisk in flour, then half-and-half until smooth and thickened. Add vegetables and clam juice. Let heat through, but do not let boil.
