Leek Food Decorations
Leek asters make a wonderful food decoration. This attractive garnish is a beautiful addition to any dish.
1. Cut the leeks (trim) at the base, so that they are flat. Cut into pieces 3-4 cm in length from the base.
2. With a sharp knife make frequent longitudinal cuts, not reaching the base. See photos.
Soak them in ice water for at least 5-6 hours in order to make them open up.
3. Tint this food decoration with natural dyes, staining them ( for example) in a solution of turmeric or beet broth. To enhance the garnish, you can also use contrasting color asters details. See photos.
