Leeks are most generally used for soups, ragouts, and other made dishes.

They are very rarely brought to table; in which case dress them as

take them out, drain and soak them in vinegar seasoned with pepper,

salt, and cloves; drain them again, stuff their hearts with a farce, dip

them in butter, and fry them.
