Grown in the Temecula wine country, our fresh Lemongrass is grown with NO fertilizers, NO herbicides, and NO cultivation. It is grown in a Permaculture food forest where the soil biology is complex and healthy making our Lemongrass very aromatic and a culinary gem.
Lemongrass is an herb which is used mostly in the Asian cuisine but has found its way into western fare as well. It has a tangy lemon-like flavor and is added to the broths dried or fresh. It is added to meat, poultry, and seafood dishes and adds a vibrant citrus flavor to the food. Lemongrass oil can be used as a preservative and is also helpful in repelling insects such as mosquitoes and flies.
Use the whole lemongrass in stews and curries (remember to fish it out before serving). Chop and use to make marinades and soups or add to stir-fries. Use as a flavoring for Crème Brulee or steep a stalk in a bottle of vodka for cocktails (clean and bruise a lemongrass stalk, then put it in a nearly full bottle of vodka for 3-4 days, shaking occasionally; then remove the stalks).
