It's very easy to prepare leeks. Just like garlic and onions, it's best to sautee them before cooking. And if you wish to reduce the bitterness, you can simply cut them, season with some salt and let them sit for about ten minutes. When buying leeks, make sure they're firm and straight with dark green leaves and bright white bulbs. Store up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
