Cleaning leeks...

Okay, here is a tip for you.  If you use leeks, you know that before using them, you are supposed to soak them to get all the sand out of the stem ends,  Well, I never have the time for that so this is what I do....

Cut the ends and halve them, then put them in a jar with water.  


Put on the lid and SHAKE!


Shaking loosens them up and the sand gets washed away....



Pour through a colander and give a final rinse before using.  Works like a charm and takes just a few minutes to do.
