Get Fresh with Leeks

Look for leeks with fresh green tops and glossy white ends with rootlets. Store them unwashed and wrapped in a damp paper towel in a sealed plastic bag for up to a week. Prep only the tender white and lightest-green portions, and be sure to carefully clean your leeks to remove any dirt from between the layers!
