Fresh leeks

DSCN1459.jpgI love the taste of freshly-harvested leeks; royalty of the onion family. The white and light green parts are tastiest, so bury young plants deep and mulch high with leaves or such to blanch the stems. These are headed to leek & potato soup.

    GORGEOUS leeks!! I wish my husband liked them so that I could use them more. If I want them as a “vegetable” by themselves, they have to be for myself only, as I can only sneak them by hubby if they’re thoroughly disguised by other ingredients.
