Tender and flavoursome

I was surprised to see all the negative reviews. I just chopped the very ends of the green off (quite normal for a leek) washed, then sautéed in a frying pan with balsamic vinegar - and they were delicious!

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Waste of money

Mostly tough green leaves with very little white. Full of sand so had to hack them about to get clean. Never again.

Rating: 3 star out of 5

6 in my pack

Lasted well past the sell by date. The green bits are gritty but the white is fine. However, there were only 6 leeks in my pack - enough for one person as a side dish, so they've turned out to be pretty expensive on balance.

Rating: 3 star out of 5

Too gritty

We bought these for a BBQ and although they tasted good, they were so gritty, even after washing thoroughly. Big disappointment.

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Most gritty leek ever

Had to totally destroy these to get all the grit and sand out, may as well have bought biggers ones, they certainly could be retained in their original shape.
