How do I clean Leeks?
Cut off the dark greek part, you only what the white and light green parts. Leeks are grown in sand, so you will have to clean it very well. Make a lengthwise cut from the bottom to the top cutting only halfway through. Stick it in a sink of cold water, fan the leaves and swish in the water. Then rinse under running water, slice and use.
