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?

wash, cut off little roots at the bottom, and the tops and use.

Last weekend at camp we dug under a couple inches of snow and leaves and found some leeks. Fried them up whole, shoots and all, and put them on the first charcoal grilled burgers of the year. Heaven!

I eat the whole thing, fried them in a skillet with some deer steaks the other day, they were great. I also chopped some up real fine and mixed them in ground venison and made burgers on the grill. I don't think there's a bad way to make them.

I was in Potter County on Tuesday and the ground was covered with them. They are really growing thick. I had some in my ham sandwich. Pretty tasty.
