How to Select and Store Leeks

Begin by looking for slender, straight leeks that have nice bright leaves and a blemish-free bottom white portion. Take care to avoid ones that are withered or have yellow spots on the leaves. With respect to size, both the small and large leeks are delicious and the only difference between the two is in the cooking time.

It’s best to buy leeks as you need them, but if you plan on storing them loosely wrap leeks in a plastic bag and tuck them in the crisper for up to five days.
