Lemongrass

Lemongrass is a tropical herb - and thus an annual in this area - with a strong citrus-y flavor. It is a common ingredient in Asian cooking, teas, soups, and sauces.

Storage: Keep dry in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to a week. You can peel and dispose of the outer layers away to expose the inner white, reedy part before chopping and freezing for up to 3 months.

Preparation: Peel and dispose of the outer layers away to expose the inner white, reedy part. Chop or grate and add to your dish. You can add a small chunk to the water when you make ricer - just remember to remove the chunk of lemon grass before serving. To infuse tea, trim the top and bottom before crushing with the side of a knife and placing in the hot water.
