Q. Harvesting Leeks

I have been away for weeks and when I got home, the weather had turned very cold. My leeks are now frozen in the ground. Are they a complete loss?

They may not be yet, but if you do not get them out of the ground soon, they will be. Harvest them as soon as you can.

Q. Can Leeks Be Frozen After Harvesting?

A.

They can be frozen, but they will not be as pretty when they are thawed. If you plan on cooking with them, this is not a problem, as the heat of the cooking process would leave them looking like this anyway.
