Melt the butter in a soup pan and add the leeks. Cook over a simmering flame for 3 minutes, continuously stirring until translucent, not allowing the leeks or butter to colour.
Add 1.5l of water and bring it to a boil. Add 1 level teaspoon of coarse sea salt to the pan, add the potatoes and simmer for 25 minutes.
