Untrimmed, please!

You decide what to do with the greens as the leeks will come untrimmed during the season in Northern Ireland. What we also love about freshly harvested farm produce, is the soil that will need to be washed away before use, showing that they are indeed grown in good earth and not tinkered with.

We source them from a number of growers from Comber area and after they finish we are using produce from the UK or Europe.

Seasonality

First leeks that become available are usually thin with long greens, ideal for soups and will come in bunches. Later in the season, they will grow to their full size and will be great for stews. These leeks are firm, with plenty of white flesh, mild taste with a hint of sweetness.

Variety of use

Leeks are a versatile vegetable used for stews, soups, salads, pasties and many others! Two of the world's most famous soups, Scotland's cock-a-leekie and France's crème vichyssoise, are based around them.

Storage

Leeks are best kept in fridge, they are similar to onions, so you can peel couple first layers of leaves to refresh them.
