Leeks grow in abundance in the woods near my home. I love the mild aroma of the wild onions in the air after it rains. The best time I've found to harvest leeks in my area is early May (this will be different based on your region).
During the period when leeks are prime for picking, I like to substitute leeks with many of dish I would normally add onions. Leeks are especially wonderful in soups.
