Luscious leeks

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N Leeks
½ cup Unsalted butter
2 tablespoons Packed dark brown sugar
\N \N Fresh grated nutmeg to taste
\N \N Fresh ground black pepper to taste

Rinse leeks very thoroughly, then cut in half lengthwise. Rinse leek halves, separating layers to wash out dirt; then cut crosswise in 1-inch thick slices. Melt butter in large, heavy skillet over medium heat; add leeks & sprinkle with brown sugar, several grates of nutmeg & generous grindings of black pepper. Cook, stirring, until leeks are caramelized on the outside. When edges are as brown as desired, serve. Makes 6 servings.
