    Cock-a-leekie soup is a filling winter soup made with barley, chicken and lots of leeks. My version adds a pinch of cloves which I feel lifts the flavour. Serve with plenty of crusty bread.

    Chicken stock is used as the base of many dishes, including soups, stews and casseroles. Home-made chicken stock made with bones and trimmings is much cheaper than bought stock. For maximal convenience, make a big pot of stock, then freeze in small batches to use when required.

    Lovely slow-simmered chicken leek soup for a cold winter's day. Serve with warm chunky bread and butter.

    The "Auld Reekie" does not refer to the soup being smokey but to the origins of the recipe in Edinburgh which used to be called Auld Reekie in the days of coal fires. Cock-a-leekie soup makes a regular appearance in Scottish kitchens but this variation has a special ingredient - Scotch whisky! It will, as they say, "stick to your ribs". Adding soaked prunes is optional but traditional.
