1 White onion chopped
2 - 3 cans of chopped clams
1 can of evaporated canned milk
1 cup of butter
1 cup of flour
Sea Salt

Place the cubed potatoes in a large pot and fill with water just to cover the potatoes and onion. Add in the juice from the clams and the diced fresh garlic. Boil until tender. In a small pot melt the butter and whisk with 1 cup of flour and equal parts canned milk and regular milk. Stir constantly over medium heat until thick.
