Buttered Leeks

Serves 4-8

8 medium leeks
1/2 cup butter
salt and pepper

  1. Thoroughly wash the leeks, trim them so there's about equal amounts of green and white, then cut diagonally into 1" pieces.
  2. Put the leeks and most of the butter (reserve a pat or two) in a large saucepan with a lid.
  3. Add 1/2 cup water, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium, and cook for 5-8 minutes until leeks are tender but not mushy.
  5. Drain, season to taste with salt and pepper, and melt an extra pat or two of butter over the hot leeks.
