1/2 cup celery; chopped;
1 carrot; peeled and diced;
3 bay leaves;
1 tablespoon fresh thyme; chopped;
1/2 cup Flour;

In a heavy stock pot, over medium heat, fry the bacon, until crispy, about 8 minutes. Stir in the onions, celery and carrots. Saute for about 2 minutes or until the vegetables start to wilt. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper. Add the bay leave and thyme. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Add the potatoes. Stir in the clam juice. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until the potatoes are fork tender, about 12 minutes. Add the cream and bring up to a simmer. Add the clams and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the parsley. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Remove the bay leaves and throw away.
