How to make it

  • Peel potatoes and dice
  • Melt butter in a 5 quart pot, add diced potatoes and a dash of salt and saute till lightly golden
  • Add water and chicken soup base, simmer
  • Wash and trim the leeks
  • Using kitchen shears snip one handfull of the leeks into small pieces and add to the pot.
  • Simmer till potatoes are tender.
  • Blend half the soup in blender till creamy and thick. Add back into the pot.
  • Add milk slowly. Heat till once again hot but not boiling.
  • Snip the remaing leeks into the pot, do not boil, just keep warm.

  • Optional: Dice salt pork into 1/4 inch pieces and fry till you get cracklings. Serve warm leek soup topped with the pork cracklings.

    Wild Leeks are also known as Ramps
    The main difference is wild leeks are free for the foraging and Ramps are $12. or more per lb at Whole Foods...
