    1      teaspoon      cumin seeds
    1      teaspoon      caraway seeds
    1      teaspoon      fennel seeds
    3      tablespoons   olive oil
    6                    leeks -- thinly sliced (about
    4                    cups)
   10                    potatoes -- peeled and cut into
    1      cup           cooked ham -- cut into 1/2-inch
   10      cups          chicken stock
    3      cups          red cabbage -- thinly sliced

 In a large stock pot heat cumin, caraway and fennel seeds over medium heat until
lightly toasted and fragrant; do not burn. Remove to a small plate. Add oil and
heat over medium-low heat. Add leeks and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add
potatoes, ham and stock, bring to a boil, then add cabbage and reserved seeds.
Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Season to
taste with salt and pepper.
