Recipes: Andy’s Potato-Leek Soup

Andy’s Easy Braised Leeks

Share #1: King Richard Leeks – This was not a good year for onions here on the farm. We lost an entire Easy Bean bed of onions, and my own plantings of onions: red, yellow, and cippolini also failed almost utterly. I also heard similar tales from other local growers. But leeks, on the other hand, we’ve got leeks coming out of our ears! So get to know them!These King Richard leeks are an old variety, and we have a long row left from the Easy Bean plantings. I (Seth) love, love, love leeks, and their affinity for butter is truly diivine. I remember a memorable Valentine’s dinner cooked with my sweetheart that involved buttery leeks, garlic, and asparagus over pasta. Mmm, yes. That was a good meal :c) It’s time to make your own leek memories!
