    Grannydragon's Note:

    Simple, soothing and comforting. Probably our families all time favorite soup. You have got to make this with your own homemade chicken stock. I have a freezer full of stocks. May I suggest Kittencal's Turkey Stock recipe, only make it from a chicken carcass. When serving you can add a bit of cream or 1/2 & 1/2 to the bowl, I do not!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 bunches leeks, throughly rinsed and diced
    • 2 onions, peeled and diced
    • 3 stalks celery, diced, leaves included
    • 1/4 lb butter or 1/4 lb chicken fat
    • 4 cups chicken stock
    • 2 lbs red potatoes, with peels on, diced
    • salt and pepper
    • half-and-half (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Throughly rinse leeks to remove inner sandy grit.
    2. 2
      Sautee diced leeks, onions, and celery in butter, in a soup pot, until soft.
    3. 3
      Add homemade chicken stock and potatoes. Simmer 35 minutes or less, testing for the tenderness of the potatoes.
    4. 4
      Adjust the seasonings.
    5. 5
      At this point you could add half and half to thicken. I never do! However,DO NOT boil after the addition of the 1/2 and 1/2.

      I grew up eating Cock-a-leekie at my grandmothers & it is still the only thing I will eat when I am ill too! This recipe is excellent. I had 2 small chicken carcasses which I boiled up for my stock then followed on with the rest of the recipe. Absolutely delicious! Thanks so much Grannydragon. :)
