  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 250 grams leeks
  • 800 grams ham bone (cut in half)
  • 10 cups water


  • Wash any loose dirt off the outside of the leek. Slice thinly and then add to a colander. Rinse vigorously under running water to remove any grit between the layers.
  • Add the leeks to a pressure cooker along with a tablespoon of oil. Cover (but do not seal) the pot and let the leeks steam over medium heat until the leeks have wilted.
  • Remove the lid and saute until the leeks have caramelized.
  • Add the ham bone and water. Cover and seal the pressure cooker and cook under high pressure for 1 hour.
  • Follow your pressure cooker's instructions to release the pressure or let it drop naturally and then strain the stock.
  • Portion the stock and freeze or use it within a few days.
