Look for leeks that have fresh looking, green leaves and a stem that is white, firm and without any signs of decay.
Store leeks in the vegetable drawer of your fridge if possible.
To freeze leeks, chop and blanche for 1 minute before draining and placing in freezer bags.

Try and make use of both the green and white parts of the leek. The white end of leeks is more like an onion and is great use as a base for soups and stews. The green end is perfect for stir-fries and stocks. As an alternative to frying or boiling, leeks are delicious lightly steamed.
