Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Food Facts
Since leeks are grown in sandy soil, they must be washed well before use. To prepare leeks, trim the roots then remove and discard the dark green portions. Chop the white and light green portions of the leeks, then rinse in cold water to remove any sand. Drain well before using as desired.
