Step by step recipe
- 1: Place leek in front of you.

- 4: Remove outer leaves, usually dry or wilted, by pulling downwards.
- 5: Split the top in two lengthways, starting at 7-8 cm or 3 inches from bottom (white).
- 6: Turn and cut again, so that the top part is split into four.
- 7: The top of the leek will now be like a tassle, making cleaning easier.
