Leeks

Was a good day to gather a few Leeks for some Potato Soup.

Haha, I should post the rest of that recipe, first time I posted any pics. and now I can't remember how I did it. Any way here is the other side and the rest of the recipe.: (Use 1 and 1/2 cups of Leeks in place of the Onion )Add Bacon to Milk Mixture add Potatoes, Cover with lid cook on low boil for 30 minutes check every 5 minutes and stir. Serve with Sour Dough Bread.

Waynzee, sounds like a good recipe. thanks for posting. one question for you or anyone else .is there a difference in taste between a wild leek and one you boy in a grocery store. just wondering ,see that the wild leeks will be up in a few months and what is the best way of putting them away for future use after harvesting.

I would say: yes there is a difference. I've also noticed a difference in flavor and "potency" among different patches of wild leeks.

I put mine in the freezer for a couple months.

The wild ones have a stronger flavor than the store bought ones, at least the ones I've had. I like to sautee' them and freeze them for future use in leek and potato soup and in fried potatoes.

I've frozen the bulbs, and like onion bulbs, freeze just fine. I doubt that the stalks/leaves would freeze well, but haven't tried it

I use jalapenos quite a bit with grilled burgers. I saved the pickling brine the peppers come in and filled a couple jars with ramp bulbs. They aren't for the faint of heart or stomach.....or if you plan on kissing anyone for, like..... a week. But the pickled bulbs will keep at least a couple years in the jar in the fridge.
Buckethead and Zeke like this.
