Slice off the root end of each leek. Cut each one in half lengthwise. Wash thorougly. Put them in a long shallow casserole or saute pan. Add butter, water and salt. Cover. Cook on medium low for 15-25 minutes, until tender, turning them from time to time. When tender, remove lid and turn up the heat, boiling away all the liquid. Add the cheese, mixing in lightly.
