L Is For Lemon Grass

A to Z Challenge: Lemongrass

Another plant that is often used in Thai and Indonesian cooking, lemon grass has a delicate lemony flavor. The inner core is tender and can be chopped similar to scallions. The outer part can be used for flavoring in teas and soups.

Matches well with: pork, shellfish, chicken and in soups

Healing properties: it has pain relieving properties, because of its ability to alleviate muscle spasms. The vapor of lemon grass is inhaled, to aid in calming and removing fever. Great for sore throats.

Magical properties: psychic opening and cleansing

    • the older the lemon grass, the less flavor it has. Also be careful with what you pair it with, some spices overpower any other herb or spice, no matter what. Blessings, Jo, and thanks for stopping by!
