What is Currently in Season
Leeks are often interchangeable with onions and garlic but require different preparation and do not produce cloves. Leeks develop six to ten inch long edible stems. The roots are cylindrical and the stalks have dark green, flat leaves. Leeks have a milder onion flavor and are considered the sweetest vegetable in the onion family. Leeks can be harvested at many stages in their life cycle.
Leeks contain allicin, which is antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal. Allicin also produces sulfenic acid when it digests in your body, which means that it neutralizes dangerous compounds. Leeks are a good source of lutein and zeaxanthin, which contribute to healthy eyesight.
