LEMONGRASS

picture of lemongrass

This fragrant Asian spice should best be used fresh. You can buy it in Asian grocery stores.  

remove outer leavesTo prepare it, generally cut off the ends. They only taste wooden. Then cut the stalk to remove the hard outer leaves. I always break the stalks with my lime squeezer to release the aroma. 

break stalksYou have two options: either cut the lemongrass in thin rings and put them into a food processor or mortar,  You can also put a whole stalk or big pieces of it into the food and remove it before serving, then only the aroma remains. 

You can also use it to make tea or a refreshing lemonade.
