Leeks

From: Holmquest Farms (Integrated Pest Management in Hudson, NY)

A member of the lily family with a mild, slightly sweet onion taste. Think giant scallion. Our guilty pleasure is leeks baked in cream—trim the leeks and slice the white parts in half lengthwise, then rinse and arrange on a baking dish, cut side up. Mix 2 cups of heavy cream with a pinch of Dijon mustard and pepper, then pour over the leeks. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top and bake 30-45 minutes or until leeks are tender and the top golden.
