1/4 lb bacon

1 lb butter

1 1/2 onions, diced

1/2 lb celery, diced

2 oz roasted garlic, chopped

1/2 lb flour

8 oz white wine

8 oz clam juice

6 oz bourbon

In a sauce pot, cook bacon until crispy, then add butter, onions, celery and garlic. Cook until the vegetables become slightly tender, then add flour to make a roux. Slowly add the white wine and stir constantly to avoid lumps. Add the clam juice, half & half, heavy cream, and potatoes, then let simmer for 25-30 minutes. Add the onion salt and garlic salt. Bring heat to medium, add the seafood and cook for 8-10 minutes. Add bourbon 4 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers.
