DIRECTIONS

  • Throughly rinse leeks to remove inner sandy grit.
  • Sautee diced leeks, onions, and celery in butter, in a soup pot, until soft.
  • Add homemade chicken stock and potatoes. Simmer 35 minutes or less, testing for the tenderness of the potatoes.
  • Adjust the seasonings.
  • 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.
