Leek and raw ham soup

Leek and raw ham soup recipe

Summary: This is a version of Marguerite soup that remains, by far, my daughter’s favorite. In addition, it is so easy to do. This time, I wanted to give it a little more character, I got a magnificent raw Bayonne ham heel in my hypermarket. I stripped it partly in order to grill the rind in my cast iron casserole dish, of course I added raw ham, (why be stingy?) But I did not cook it, I just sliced at the last moment of the ends of very fine chiffonades, frankly a pleasure this soup of leeks and ham. For this soup, I only put the leek whites, the rest of the green is stored in the freezer while waiting for my next vegetable soup. Usually and again this time, Léonie likes to add raw butter to her leek and raw ham soup, but frankly, I am not sure that it is necessary, indeed the heel of the raw ham, has delicately perfumed this beautiful Soupe.
