  3. Add celery, carrots, potatoes, thyme, white pepper, salt, and sautée for 15 more minutes. 4. Add the clam juice, bring to a boil, and simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes.
  4. Make the roux: Melt the remaining butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the flour and stir to make a smooth paste. Cook, stirring, until the roux bubbles; cook 2 minutes more.
  5. Whisk in a cup of the hot broth and then pour this mixture back into the cooked vegetables. Simmer for a few minutes until the broth is thickened.
