Melissa’s Organic Leeks look like large Green Onions. The thick white stalks and slightly bulbous roots of leeks are topped off by broad, flat, green leaves that wrap tightly around each other.
Leeks are actually related to both onions and garlic, and contain a more subtle flavor and fragrance.
Melissa's Organic label reads: “Melissa's Certified Organic Produce is free of artificial or synthetic fertilizers and full of unforgettable, great tasting flavor. Our farmers use traditional earth-friendly farming methods inspected by a nationally recognized agency to verify organic authenticity. Melissa's Organic Produce, a choice made closer to nature.”
Raw, they can be thinly sliced and added to salads, relishes, and salsas.
Organic Leeks from Melissa’s are hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose firm stalks and avoid any yellow or brown spots. They should be fresh-looking and flexible. Store in the refrigerator, wrapped in paper towels for up to five days or more.
