    1. slice leeks thinly and add to pot
    2. slice carrots thinly and add to pot
    3. dice turnip and add to pot
    4. cut tatties -potatoes into small pieces and add to pot
    5. add water to cover all ingredients -bring to boiling point -lower heat and simmer for 1 hour 30 minutes -add boiling water if becomes too thick -stir occasionally to ensure it does not stick to bottom of pot
