Lemon grass is well regarding for its aromatic flavour. Lemongrass has a refreshing lemon-lime taste with a tinge of mint and ginger. Fresh lemongrass has a delicate, rose-like fragrance mixed with a fresh and grassy aroma.


Culinary Uses

Lemongrass is widely used as a culinary herb in Asian cuisine and as a medicinal herb in India. It has a subtle citrus flavour and can be dried and powdered, or used fresh. Lemongrass provides a distinct flavour to teas, soups and curries complementing poultry, fish, beef and seafood dishes.


Selecting the best produce

The freshest, best quality lemongrass will have long, relatively green stalks that are anywhere between ¼ to ½ inch in thickness and a chubby bulb. The bulb may even have a slight blush at the base, but shouldn’t appear to have dried out. Fresh lemongrass will have a more pungent aroma and flavour.


Storing

0 degrees celcius at 90-100% relative humidity.
