Do not buy
These were part of a click and collect and were actually frozen when I collected them. I used them the same day and they were absolutely disgusting. There were so many un-chewable pieces and the gave the entire dish a bitter edge. Very unpleasant and will only purchase fresh uncut in future.
half of the veg was inedible
This contained many parts of the leek that never get soft however long you boil it, so you have to select out the bit of white stalk that are actually edible.
OK< but releases a lot of water when cooked.
so tuff to cook

Defrosted/refrozen solid mass/mostly tough greens
Lot of tough, green leaf which would be discarded or used as stock from a fresh leek - broken end leaves clearly visible & roughly chopped/some bruising. I buy in case fresh unavailable - in theory green ok for a long cook soup as otherwise it can't be braised or steamed as takes forever, if cooks at all, so convenience gone. Would separate white as solo veg or for a pie, but as Tesco frozen veg arrives as a frozen lump, it is impossible to do this before defrosting a lump broken off with a rolling pin.
Fine if you want shredded leeks.
I was expecting whole round slices of leek. These are not sliced leeks, more like shredded. They were fine for what I wanted, but don't expect proper round slices.
Have to agree with others these are Grim. These are like another has said like eating cardboard and completely tasteless a complete waste of money. I would have taken them back to the store but there are so many people not wearing masks in my local store that i did not want to risk it.
Bought these because fresh leeks were unavailable but NEVER again. They were tasteless and it was like chewing cardboard. They completely ruined a chicken and leek pie and a beef stew so threw the rest in the bin. I would not reccomend.
Stay tough and chewy regardless of how long you cook them. Threw the rest away.
