Preserving Leeks



Today I needed a quarter of a leek naturally the power of bulk buying over took me and I ended up with a bunch of them. So I decided to freeze the rest for later.

You can blanch them before freezing but I decided to try fresh freezing basically as following:

1. Cut the leeks into thin pieces.
2. Bag the pieces in freezer bags ensuring you get most of the air out.
3. Note what is in the bags and a user by date. They should last about 3 months but tend to get more bitter the older they are.

Good for ussr in soups and casseroles.
