|Lemon Grass - an essential herb|
for Asian cuisine, the leaves and stems
can be used fresh or dried to impart a
distinct lemon flavor. It also makes a
wonderful ingredient for hot teas.
|Lemon Balm's most popular use is in|
soothing herbal teas, where its
lemon-scented volatile oils are released.
The dried leaves are also a perfect
ingredient for potpourri and dream pillows.
Today is the day to plant my new herb seeds. First the peppermint then the Lemon Grass and Lemon Balm. I'm really excited about these as I love the look of grasses in the garden and can't wait to taste their lively lemon flavor in my tea. The seeds were purchased from Park Seed Company.
