1 bottle clam juice
5 small potatoes, peeled and diced
1 onion, finely minced
2 carrots, diced
2 celery stalks, finely diced
1/2 pound thick sliced bacon, cut into pieces and fried crisp
1 quart half and half
3 Tablespoons butter

Fry bacon until crisp in soup pan. Remove bacon. Add potatoes,onions, carrots, and celery to bacon grease; fry for 5 minutes or until softened but not browned. Add reserved clam broth, bottled clam juice and water to just cover. Bring to boil, turn heat down and simmer until veggies are tender (about 15-20 minutes).
