I have been saving asparagus ends in the freezer until I had almost a half pound. I just hated to waste this, even though in usual steaming the ends just never seem to become edible.
I cleaned a full sized leek by slicing into strips, then in chunks, soaking in warm water. (I kept changing water).
I had some potatoes that were starting to head towards sprouting.
All vegetables were thrown into the 6 Quart crock pot with some butter, half a box of low sodium organic chicken broth, 16 ounces of water, salt and pepper.
after cooking on low for 8 hours DH used our immersion blender. I am grateful that I got to taste it. Gpa P ate all but two servings before I got home. There is one serving left.
This is what it looks like after blending.
A better view of what was left after Gpa ate. I wish I had his metabolism!
