another leek question

Ok, after reading all the posts and recipes, I decided to dig some leeks for the first time this year. I found a great spot last year, so getting them shouldn't be a problem. My question is, how do you guys prepare them? After I get a bucket full home and rinse the dirt off, what's next? I'm gonna make some dip and take into work, so I need to know how to clean them; what gets discarded, what gets saved to work with?

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.

Re: another leek question

Re: another leek question

Just use the white part. I put them in the frying pan with venison and its killer.

Re: another leek question

Almost forgot about the trout. We do that quite often as well.

Re: another leek question

I live in the upper bucks area and was wondering if anyone knew of an area to find leeks. Thanks
