Melted Leeks  

3 leeks, dark green ends removed
2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cut the leeks, white and light green parts, in quarters lengthwise, then cut across the grain into small squares, removing the root end. Place the cut leeks in a large bowl, fill with the bowl with water and stir. Allow any dirt to settle to the bottom, first, remove the leeks from the water, then discard the water. In a large pot with a lid, melt the butter, over medium heat, and add the wet leeks. Season with the salt and stir. Cook slowly over medium heat, for about 15 minutes, until the leeks are very soft. Serve as a side dish with meat, over mashed potatoes or cooked beans or on toasted bread.
