    Actually you're making sort of a small batch there, we load in a couple of them 2 quart boxes of broth when we do it up.
    Last step, oddly MY job so I can be blamed for any splashing is the Oster hand blender outboard motor.
    When I do it correctly the onions and leeks sit on the bottom as everything else gets properly homogenized and incorporated.

    What's left goes to the freezer, heavy plastic bag inserted into the broth box after the box gets washed out.
    Franz we never buy leaks, I'll make sure we get some this weekend. What are shaved leeks? How much of the stalk do you use and how do you clean the dirt out of them? How about adding leeks to chicken broth in a food processor, what consistency are looking for.?. Thanks

      Leek 1.01 Fall Semester

      When buying if the store sells by weight, employ your knife to remove most of the green leaves and leave them at the store.
      Minimum diameter of the leek should be 1" or leave it in the store.

      Remove roots and base in the same manner as an onion. Remove outer layer.
      Place kitchen matches in your teeth head out from mouth.
      Shave leek as if it were an onion to produce slices no more than .060" thick.
      Stop slicing when slices display 80% green. Taste if in doubt.
      Additional leeks may require replacement of matches depending on how well you see through tears.
      Place slices in covered saute pan or deep heavy soup pan with butter and sweat covered leeks about 15 minutes over low heat so they don't caramelize..

        If you never had a white hot have a couple thrown in your box. Pork & veal. Not found far from Rochester.

        Few hundred pounds a day leave via FedX and UPS for displaced Rochesterians.

        Walmart will ship them to your local store too.

        I recommend 309 ss wire, minimum 1/8 for your roasting skewers unless you're going direct electric cooking like the Chair.
        40 amps DCRP end to end and be careful pulling the rod stubs out.
        My grandparent's had a farm on Pixley road in Rochester. My grandmother's brother had an ice cream stand in town called Rusell's ice cream. They retired to Boca Raton and raised me on Rochester white hots from Wegman's. I happened to be in Horseheads, NY a few months ago and found a Wegman's. Needless to say I hav a few packs in my freezer. I didn't think anyone else on this planet know what a Rochester white hot was.

          How'd you like the Wegman's experience?
          Began as a local wholesale greengrocer in Rochester, and just kept growing by treating people the way they'd want to be treated. Today they are one of Rochester's leading employers, still family owned, and run by the 4th generation girl named Coleen.

          Town of Gates sure grew too, doubt the ancestors would recognize any part of Pixley. Sadly even Ackermans where you could get your white hot with dip or not and properly roasted over charcoal on a hunk of fire escape grate sitting on bricks behind the counter was torn down to make room for, you guessed it, WEGMANS. Stores now run 70,000 square feet and up, and the newest in the DC area is 2 stories with an escalator that carrys shopping carts & customers.

          Wegmans will do Home delivery for 10 bucks, or have your order picked charged out and waiting for you at the store pickup at no charge. Best part, every store has a fleet of "Customer in training" carts for kids to push, and I think every 3 year old kid in town knows where those carts park in the store.
          You might be outside the home delivery area for a few more years.
          One of the original stores, 4 stories is still on Main St in the city, no longer owned by Wegmans, but the facia stone still has the Wegman name carved into it. In the Depression it housed a 300 capacity cafeteria and legend is many penniless man and woman ate there on credit.
