Leeks

Care & Storage:
Store leeks in a plastic bag in the fridge. They’ll keep for weeks, even months - the outer layers will begin to dehydrate, but the insides will stay tender!

Easy Prep Ideas:
Leeks are related to onions, but they’re more mild in flavor, and they don’t make you cry when you cut them! They can be sliced and used raw, or you can lightly sautee them or substitute them for onions in recipes. There’s always potato leek soup, but you aren’t limited to that. Stir fry, or add to mashed potatoes, soups, and quiche or an omelet…you name it!
