i bought these because it was labeled “leeks” in the grocery store, and i needed leeks for a recipe. the recipe suggested frozen ones, but i couldn’t find them, so off to the veggie aisle i went, looking for a vegetable i have never ever seen.

these are not leeks. i checked with wikipedia. so then, what are they? the grocery store receipt says “anise”, but i looked that up too and it doesn’t look right either. if you know, please fill me in. i can’t figure it out.
