Leeks are a tasty ingredient in soups, stews and stocks. One reason to grow them is you'll have access to baby leeks — something you won't often find in stores. They make a delicious side dish when grilled with a bit of oil or braised in the oven. Visit the Recipes portion of the Vegetables Forum for specific recipes.

Leeks and onions are part of the same alium family. Not surprising then, they are grown in a similar way. The biggest differences are in how they are planted and how they are harvested.

Our favorite supplier of leeks is Dixondale Farms.
