First leeks


I harvested the first of the leeks this hot afternoon, and these little freezer bags represent five batches of Gladys Taber's Leek and Potato Soup.

  1. How did you prep the leeks for freezing?

  3. Raidergirl, I just chop them up and put them in the bags.

    Rachel, this soup is the only way I use them, and the taste is just heavenly.

  4. Nan, when we arrived home from meeting the new granddaughter on Friday, we found the deep freeze had developed a fault and all the contents had to be thrown out. All my lovely soups and pies! I was heartbroken but you've inspired me to begin again with some new season leeks.

  7. ummmm yummy! Not too many people in the west know of the delicious-ness of leeks! Born a little dutch girl, my mother was a huge fan and thrilled she could buy leeks here in the states!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
