Fish Chowder

This is a creamy, comforting & fairly easy to make soup. Paired with some homemade bread, it makes the perfect meal for a cool autumn day.
2 tbs butter
1 large onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, minced
1 clove garlic, minced or crushed
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups cubed potatoes
1 lb fish, cubed (I used cod filets)
1/2 tsp old bay
salt & pepper, to taste
1 16oz bottle clam juice
1/2 cup flour
3 cups milk
1 cup cream
Sautee the onion, celery and garlic in the butter. Add chicken broth & potatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add the fish & and old bay & simmer another 10 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine the clam juice & flour. Slowly stir into the simmering chowder, until thickened. Stir in milk & cream & reheat. Add salt & pepper to taste. Makes 8 good-sized servings.
