Storage tips!

Leeks, like most other onions, can be stored outside the refrigerator as long as they are in a cool, dry place. If storing your leeks, do not wash them. Instead, dust off any soil remnants and let the exterior dry out. In optimal conditions, they can store for up to three months.

If you plan on using your leeks soon, they can be stored in the refrigerator. Trim off the excess greens and wrap each leek in plastic/beeswax wrap, covering it completely. Place them into a plastic/beeswax wrap, and use within two weeks.

Leeks do not freeze well, as they turn mushy due to cell wall breakage. Similarly, canning will turn them mushy, so that isn’t an option.

These do dry quite well in a dehydrator. Slice them into fine slices and put them in a dehydrator set at 145 degrees Fahrenheit until they are crisp. Store in an airtight container out of direct light. If storing for a longer period of time, add a moisture-absorbing packet to your leeks.
