Pretentious it may be, but it is simply to make, and even my Iowa farm man loves this. Mostly this comes from Joy of Cooking. If you like this recipe, to others at my website: mybestcookbook.wordpress.com

chicken stock

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Clean your leeks carefully, the outer leaves especially get full of sand. (I usually chop them and then place in a colander and rinse). Chop roughly.

Melt butter in saute pan and place the leeks in, and cook on medium until tender, but not browned.

Transfer to a soup pot and add potatoes and the stock. Cook until potatoes are done about 30 minutes.
