A delicately flavoured soup. It's made by simmering together onions, leeks, potatoes in a pork stock, pureed and then blended with double cream. It's the perfect soup for the cold winter months.
Ask at your local butchers for pork soup bones.
Incredibly delicious.. I am in Germany where leeks are plentiful and cheap.. I tried this kind of soup at a german restaurant and wanted to duplicate the recipe and this one is very close. - 15 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This seemes a good, basic, potato soup, but bland. I made it once per the recipe. When I made it again, instead of a ham bone, I used ham chunks and added garlic and onion powder as well as a LOT more thyme in it. I also just used my hand mixer so it would still be chunky but creamy. I took it to a church social and it was a hit. - 26 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious! Used fat free half and half (instead of cream) and 1/4 cup butter to cut down on calories/fat. - 17 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
