im on it!!! :jump:

instead of 1/2 half cup of butter which seems excessive...imma use 2 tablespoons and some bacon grease
i also add celery, diced up ham, 1 bay leaf, oregano, and grated carrot for color.
i also used half chicken stock and half water for the 6 cups of liquid



Ingredients
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup chopped leeks
  • 8 potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 ham bone
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste


Directions

  • In a large pot over medium heat, cook onions in butter until translucent. Stir in leeks, potatoes, water, thyme and the ham bone. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove ham bone and puree soup with a blender or food processor. Return to pot, stir in cream, salt and pepper, heat through and serve.

Haven't made Cock-A-Leekie in a couple years. Many variations of the Scot soup, just an idea I snagged quick.


Ingredients For Cock a Leekie soup


One whole chicken or several pieces of uncooked and boned chicken wings, legs or quarters
400g of leeks
100g of precooked prunes that have had their stones removed
25g of rice
2 litres of water or soup stock
One teaspoon of brown sugar
Seasoning of salt and pepper, one bay leaf and some thyme
Parsley for the garnish

Optional ingredients: Three rashers of chopped streaky bacon
