  • 2 (8 ounce) bottles clam juice
  • 1 baking potato, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 (6.5 ounce) cans minced clams, drained
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook onions in melted butter until clear, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Pour clam juice into the saucepan. Add the potato; bring the mixture to a boil. Cook at a boil until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
