Leeks belong to the onion family, look a bit like a huge spring onion & have a mild onion flavour. 

Chopped leeks are good in potato gratins & soups when the weather calls for something hearty

Leeks are thought of as a winter vegetable

Leeks are great braised slowly... cut into fairly thin slices & braise in butter for about twenty minutes to unleash the sweetness... keep the heat low & do not brown

The Leek is thought to have originated from an Eastern variety of garlic.

The Romans thought that eating Leeks would make your speaking voice more imposing.

The emperor Nero ate a soup made of them every day as a result.

 

 

Leeks can reduce the chances of developing various inflammatory disorders including type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis & rheumatoid arthritis.
