Leeks belong to the same family as garlic and onions, but the taste is much more mild.They work well in many dishes containing potatoes, such as potato leeks soup or potato leeks.In many recipes for cooking onions, they can also be used instead of onions, as leeks are often not eaten raw.If you like leeks, you can dehydrate them first for later use.You can add the water to these leeks later, or add them to very humid recipes such as soup, but still dehydrated.
Place one of your leeks on the cutting board and slice them horizontally.Each slice should be between 1/8 and 1/4 thick, but the dimensional consistency between the slices is more important than the exact thickness.Stop slicing as you approach a part of the leeks, in which the first Leaf leaves the main stem.You should notice the difficulty of cutting or the sound the knife makes when cutting this is different.Once this happens, it stops.Repeat this for each leek you want to cut.
Place the leeks in the colander and pour them in cold water for a few minutes.Leeks build up dirt between their rings, so it is very important to rinse thoroughly.When you do this, separate the ring by pushing the center of each ring.This will separate the layers so that the water can clean each leeks thoroughly.
Place the leek ring flat on the dehydrator tray, and then stack the tray on the dehydrator.
Adjust the dehydrator to 100 F and dehydrate the leeks until it is completely dry.It should take 18 to 20 hours according to your dehydrator.Depending on your specific dehydrator, rotate the tray if necessary.
