About me: Lemongrass is an herb with a lemony scent. The culinary herb is produced from the stalk of the lemongrass plant (Cymbopogon citratus). It is a common ingredient in Thai cooking and can also be found in dishes from Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and India. It is best used in cooking when fresh and for teas when dried. Lemongrass tea is traditionally used for relieving anxiety and it has a diuretic effect against bloating.
To Store: To store fresh lemongrass, wrap it loosely and place it in the refrigerator. It should keep for a few weeks.
To Freeze: Freeze the stalks whole or mince the stalks and freeze them in 1-tablespoon portions to use in your recipes.
Dried: Dried or powdered lemongrass should be stored in airtight containers away from light and heat.
