Leeks & How to clean them!

How to cut and clean leeks!

1.  Cut off roots and dark green portion of leeks and discard.  Cut leeks longways down the middle.

2.  Place on the cutting board, cut side down, and slice into pieces of desired width.  Place in a large bowl and cover with cold water.  Use your hands to separate the rings.  Let sit for a few minutes until all dirt, sand, and grit falls to the bottom of the bowl.

3.  With your hands or a slotted spoon, carefully remove leeks and dry off on a paper towel.
