Leek should have a white shaft with no spots, as it can rot quickly. Like onions, leeks should not be stored together with odor-sensitive foods. Leeks can be cooked in soups and stews for seasoning. When leek is stewed in some fat, it becomes particularly tender and aromatic. Make sure that the leek does not turn brown, otherwise it tastes bitter. It is best to carve leeks lengthwise in order to remove the sand between the individual leaf layers during washing. Thin stalks of summer leeks with more delicate green taste milder than the sharper winter leeks.
