    That's all right, I'm a big girl, I can take it. But next time you are having sausages and gravy...

    Also, leeks keep well in the freezer. Wash them, drain them, slice them, and put them raw in a bag in the freezer and use them when you want. If you see a book recommend that they should be blanched, ignore it.

    Leek applique (or is it lique appleeke?) finished today. Next is shamrock for Northern Ireland.

    MissCountrygirl - if you want a sewing friend in England send me a message! Will you do a French quilt with a tricolor, fleur de lys and cock?

    Many years ago I made a leek pie. It was kind of like a quiche but made with leeks. It was very good!

    It was kind of like this except I used just plain old cheddar cheese-

    French Leek Pie
    Ingredients
    1 (9 inch) refrigerated pie crust
    2 teaspoons butter
    3 leeks, chopped
    1 pinch salt and black pepper to taste
    1 cup light cream
    1 1/4 cups shredded Gruyere cheese




    Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in leeks; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, or until soft. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low. Stir in cream and cheese, and warm through. Pour mixture into pie shell
    3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until custard is set and golden on top. Allow to sit 10 minutes before cutting pie into wedges.

    Are we going to have to start a leeks thread in the recipes section? Leek and Stilton flan anyone?

    Works4me...I posted the recipe on the leeks links thread that Murv started. Many more there to try.

    QuiltE...leeks are easy to grow.
