Irish Potato Leek Soup
Potato Leek Soup is one of those simple ethnic dishes that probably arose out of the need to stretch the food supply. Think about it! It is pretty obvious that it is made up of leftover ingredients or at least those easily procured in a nearby/family orchard. My husband’s German aunt used to make Leek and Potato Soup and it was delicious. She did it the old fashioned way. How? Well, after everything was cooked, she would take a fine sieve and push down the solids through the mesh with a pestle. Yeah, talk about dedication! I guess if I wanted to be 100% authentic I could do it this way, maybe. Nah, I don’t have the muscle power or the patience.
