    Jan in Lanark's Note:

    This recipe is quite time consuming, but well worth it as a side for turkey, roast pork etc. on a special occasion and can be prepared well in advance and reheated. Came from the Ottawa Citizen newspaper.

    3. 3
      Prepare the gratin: Heat the oven to 350.
    4. 4
      Rub a shallow 2 quart gratin dish with butter.
    5. 5
      Cook the leeks: Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
    6. 6
      Add leeks and a big pinch of salt.
    7. 7
      Cook, stirring frequently, until well softened and lightly browned, 10-15 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add 2/3 cup cider and simmer 2 minutes to reduce slightly.

      Add 1/2 cup cream, the chopped thyme, a pinch of salt, a few grinds of pepper, and stir well.
