    mrs mack's Note:

    Growing up in Scotland this soup was a favorite of mine. Over the years I have adapted it to suit my tastes. This is the full fat creamy version I use for Xmas and Thanksgiving a true treat for the holidays! But it is very easy to adapt it by using milk or half& half instead of creme fraiche, which I do at other times of the year.This freezes well, I reheat and add creme fraiche just before serving. There are creme fraiche recipes on this site the one identical to mine is Judi Caston's #34037. The servings are for holiday meals, if only for a dinner it serves about 4-6
