Lemongrass is a tall perennial grass in the sugar cane family. It is used for its aromatic flavor and oils.
Lemongrass lends a flavor to curries, noodle soups, and other Asian dishes that you won’t get otherwise.
It can also be used to make tea or other infused liquids for cooking seafood or meats.
Store your fresh lemongrass in a sealed container or plastic bag for several weeks in the fridge. Process and freeze for long term storage.
Placing the root end of your lemongrass in a jar of water in a sunny windowsill will cause the plant to push out roots. Keep the water fresh and let it grow for spring planting.
