This gorgeous leek looked almost too good to eat. By the size and heft of it, you would think it had been "genetically engineered" but in fact, it is organic, and was included in the bounty I receive weekly from Front Door Organics, a Toronto organic food delivery company that I have used for the past 2 years. Not only do they deal in only Certified Organic produce and packaged goods, but they support local growers and farmers, so goods are trucked in from the area around Toronto whenever possible . By the way, the leek was delicious! I prepared it very simply by chopping off the dark green end and splitting it in half lengthwise and boiling in salted water with a pat of butter added. I found it delicious eaten warm or cold.
