November 21, 2008, Newsletter Issue #396: Cleaning Leeks

Tip of the Week

To clean leeks, trim and remove the root ends and any damaged parts of the green leaves. Starting at the green end, split each leek in half, with the knife stopping about an inch short of the root end. Spread leaves and white root end apart and wash thoroughly under cold running water. When you think the leek is clean, wash it again...there is probably still some dirt lingering between the layers.
