Leeks are an easy to grow, sweeter and milder alternative to the onion. Similar in appearance to large scallions, leeks produce delicately tasting green-blue leaves that can be harvested at any stage. Often used raw in salads, they are even more commonly used in soups and sautees. Not fussy about transplanting or soil fertility, and rarely targeted by pest.
Melted Leeks... with orange juice... an OMG fave!
