Clam Chowder

1 can clams with juice
4 tablespoons chopped fat salt pork or chopped bacon
1 onion, chopped
1 to 2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
1-1/4 teaspoons salt
2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons flour
few grains pepper
1 cup milk

Fry out pork or bacon. Remove browned pieces and save for garnish. Sauté onion and celery in fat until onion is translucent. Add potatoes, salt and boiling water. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender.

Make a cream sauce; melt butter, stir in flour and pepper, then stir in milk and juice from the clams. Cook until slightly thick, add clams.
