In this house, we all are fans of the entire Allium family, but leeks? Leeks hold a special place in my heart. Nutritious, delicious, & FILLING, they make a meal all by themselves. Join me as we put them in the spotlight & I share my recipe for potato leek soup with a special ingredient that puts it into the 'Ultimate' Category-- For some reason, leeks aren't as widely used here in the US as their relatives onions, shallots, garlic, & chives. This is a shame, as in addition to their mild-slightly-sweeter onion flavor, they provide a ton of amazing health benefits. Leeks stimulate the immune system, support both the nervous system & cardiac health, protect against cataracts, assist in lowering blood pressure, & even reduce water retention!

If you’ve never taken the time to harvest & cook some up, you don’t know what you’re missing! Join me as we delve into harvesting & preparing quince, & just what to make with it once you do --
