1/4 cup water
3 slices bacon, diced
2 medium onions, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed

Wash and scrub mussels. Place mussels in large saucepot with the water. Cook just until shells open. Strain; reserve liquid. Remove mussels from shells and chop coarsely.
In heavy saucepot fry out bacon. Saute onions and celery until onions are transparent. Add potatoes, salt, pepper and 1 cup mussel broth. Cook until potatoes are tender about 15-20 minutes. Stir in milk and mussels; heat. Top each serving of chowder with a generous pat of margarine. Serves 4.
