they're grown throughout the united states. they're available year round. but you basically see them probably more in the late fall to early spring. because they're actually a spring vegetable too. >> are they in the celery family? >> no, no. they're in the onion family. they look like wide scallions. but because they're so big, people think right away that they're going to be hard. no, no. they're the sweetest of all the onions. leeks are the sweetest of all the onions. you can use it as a club. take it home and hit anthony at night.

now, you can use -- like mom, when you're making soups you use the whole thing, the white and the green part. you just want to trim the top off a little bit. one thing about leeks they tend to be a little sandy depending on where they're grown. you want to take the leek -- let me tell you something, leeks are really good if you want to cut them up and put them in a salad raw. you can braise them. they've got a really good taste. if you're worried about the sand, you're going to take a knife and cut them about halfway through. then you're going to open it up and there's a lot of tiny leaves in there. you're just going to wash that and that will take the sand right out of it. these are holland grown in a greenhouse. what happens is they're not -- you won't find them being very sandy sandy. another thing is, when you see
your green grocer, at the bottom of the leek they're always going to have the root. it's going to be like a root on an onion. be careful when you bring them home. take a scissor and clip the roots off, but don't clip them off to here because what's going to happen is the leek itself is going to fall apart. you want to make sure when you bring the leeks home and put them in the refrigerator, wrap them and keep them good. they'll give off an odor that goes into your milk and stuff like that, so you want to wrap them. >> can you freeze them? >> yeah. betty made today leek soup. it's terrific. really good. i brought you a container you can bring home. >> thank you. >> leek soup has a really good taste to it. it's absolutely terrific.
