If you cook with leeks, you’ve probably experienced how tough they are to clean.
My first experience was like this: I didn’t know how to wash out the dirt, from between the leek layers. I tried to peel the layers off, rinse them, then chop them up individually. But this was messy and complicated.
I also tried to run water down between the layers, but this was also difficult since there’s very little room between them. Even if the leeks “seem” to be clean overall, there’s always some dirt stuck inside, between the layers and this is due to the way they grow.
I have a technique for cleaning leeks that is quick and simple. It also saves me a lot of time when I’m preparing meals and need to make dinner quick!
