Best Ways To Store And Use Leeks

Best Storage

The fridge is the best place to store leeks.

Keep leeks fresh by storing them in the fridge inside a loosely tied plastic bag in the high humidity drawer.

Ensure your fridge is set between 0 and 4°C.

Can I Freeze It?


Leeks can be frozen! Simply wash, slice and freeze them on a tray before popping the frozen leeks into a sealed container.

Use It Up

Leeks are a great addition to a vegetable soup or a cheese sauce. You can also add cooked leeks to mashed potato.

Did You Know?

The white and light green sections of leeks are called for most frequently in recipes, while the dark green parts are usually discarded.

However, you can use the dark green parts of your leeks by cooking them longer to tenderize them or using them to make homemade stock.
