In a pot, cook bacon on medium heat until cooked through.  Add butter, celery & onion and cook on medium heat until vegetables are translucent. 

Add flour and cook to a blonde roux.  Add clam nectar in small amounts whisking constantly to break up any clumps. 

Once all clam juice is incorporated, add baby clams with their nectar and the potatoes.
