Oyster Soup (Sopa de Ostras)

This is a very typical Christmas or New Year's soup in this area of the world. You find oysters in most supermarkets, they come without the shells and in their liquid. The price is the best during this season. This is a dish that can be done whenever the oysters are at an affordable price.



6 Tablespoons Butter
2 Small Potatoes cut in very small cubes
1 Leek
The liquid of the oysters
1 Quart Half and Half (la mitad leche y la mitad crema)
1/2 to 1 Pound Oysters (without the shells)

In a pan, add the butter, the potatoes, and the leeks. Let them cook until tender. Add the liquid of the oysters and cook for about 5 minutes. Then add the half and half, let it simmer for about 10 minutes. When done, add the mix to the blender and purée, put it back in a pan and add the oysters, do not overcook them. Serve in a bowl with lemon wedges.
