What to do with a leek?

Updated: Nov 17, 2020

Storage - Leeks are happy in the fridge for a week or so, but too long and they can look shabby. You can strip away the top few layers though and the below layers are still good to use.

Tips - You can use more of the leek than you think. The dark green tops are tough but great for stock pots and long in stews when cooked for a while.

Prep - Always wash before use as they trap mud and dirt in their funnel shaped leaves. Best way is to cut them in half (length ways) and clean them in cold water with the leaves pointing down.

Freezing - Leeks can be frozen for later use in soups, casseroles and stews. Clean the leeks first, towel dry and allow them to air dry. Flash freeze them by placing them on a baking tray on top of baking parchment, in a single layer until just frozen then transfer to a reusable freezer-safe container. Use within 6 months for optimum flavour. You can add to recipes from frozen.
