   add the leeks. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add
   stock, water, potatoes, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Raise
   heat to high, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat
   to low and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Remove

   soup in a pot and reheat, covered, over low heat. To
   serve, place a generous dollop of sour cream in the
   bottom of each soup bowl and sprinkle with chopped
   chives. Transfer piping hot soup to a tureen or
   pitcher and pour into bowls at the table. Refrigerate
   soup for up to 3 days or freeze the soup in 3-cup
