Leeks are a mild form of onions with a slightly different flavor.  To prepare them, cut them in half lengthwise down the whole leek and remove root end.  Carefully, rinse between each layer to remove soil accumulated during their growth. Proceed to cut or chop them however you will use them.  Use them in cooking like onions or raw in salads.  Here is a really great way to use them as well.  This soup is thick and creamy - very filling and nourishing.

Potato Leek Soup

Bring to a boil and simmer together in large pot until potatoes are very soft.

1 med - large Leek, cut into approx 1" lengths                                                                                                                                 3 med  Potatoes, peeled and cubed                                                                                                                                               2 cups Water or chicken broth                                                                                                                                                       1 tsp  Salt
