Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 leeks, thinly sliced (white and pale green parts only)
  • 1 large russet potato, thinly sliced
  • 1 large unpeeled Macoun or McIntosh apple— cored, quartered, and thinly
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or chives (optional)

Preparation

  1. In a 4-quart saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the leeks, potato, apple, salt, and pepper. Stir well, cover, and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and place the lid on askew, so the pot is not covered completely. Cook until the potato and apple are very tender, about 30 minutes. Add the half-and-half. Puree in batches in a blender until smooth. Refrigerate several hours or overnight to chill thoroughly. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle with the dill or chives (if desired).
