Preserving Food Safely - 01600002
STORING LEEKS Leeks can be harvested whenever the plants are at the desired stage. They are usually left in the ground for some
time, then dug and heeled-in in the root cellar for storage.
When kept at a consistent 32 degrees Fahrenheit, they will
remain good for about one to three months.
