    Charlotte J's Note:

    Posted for Zaar World Tour 2006 from An Exaltation Of Soups....This Tranitional Welsh leek broth is a wonderful way to start a feast on March 1, St. Tavy's day. It is guaranteed to strengthen the heart cords of anyone with Welsh blood, but watch out for the celebration: in Wales, to be "full of loudmouth soup" is to be "drunk as a lord."

      I didn't have enough homemade chicken stock to make the whole recipe so cut it in half this time! The only other change I made was to use lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P! The recipe for this very tasty soup is great keeper ~ Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed while in Wales with ZWT6]

      I made only half of this soup and it was a big success. DH is already asking me to do it again soon LOL It's very easy to do and I like that it's just a few ingredients. Thanks Charlotte :) Made for Photo tag
