Production & Sourcing
Harvesting and Cleaning: Fresh leeks are harvested from the field when they have reached the desired maturity. The outer layers and any damaged or wilted parts of the leeks are trimmed off, leaving behind the clean and healthy portions.
Drying: The cleaned leeks are spread out in a single layer on trays or racks. They are then placed in a well-ventilated area or a dehydrator to allow air circulation. The leeks are dried at a low temperature for an extended period of time. This slow drying process helps preserve the flavor, color, and nutrients of the leeks.
Grinding: Once the leeks are completely dried, they become brittle and can easily crumble. The dried leeks are then finely ground into a powder using a spice grinder, food processor, or specialized milling equipment. The grinding process ensures that the leeks are transformed into a uniform powder with a consistent texture.
