The tender core may be eaten; but, as the leek ages, the core becomes woody and very chewy and better replanted than eaten.Leek has a mild onion-like taste, although less bitter than organic scallion. The taste might be described as a mix of mild onion and cucumber. It has a fresh smell similar to scallion. In its raw state, the vegetable is crunchy and firm.Organic Leek is typically chopped into slices 5-10mm thick. The slices have a tendency to fall apart, due to the layered structure of the leek. There are different ways of preparing the vegetable: * Boiled, which turns it soft and mild in taste. * Fried, which leaves it more crunchy and preserves the taste. * Raw, which can be used in salads, doing especially well when they are the prime ingredient.
