Leeks [Moved from Home Cooking board]

butterchicken2nan | Jan 30, 2008 12:00 PM

Just watched that little Norwegian cooking show on Public TV and something struck me. He made leek and potato soup and he chopped a whole leek without cleaning it - there was no soil in between the layers. I remember growing up in Scotland we always had leeks in soup and never had to clean them other than removing any rough-looking outer layers.
So are there different types of leek - some which hold onto soil and some which don't?
