What is lemongrass?

Lemongrass is a Southeast Asian grass that has a lemony aroma and flavor thanks to its high content of essential citral oil.

Commonly used in Indonesian, Malaysian, Vietnamese and Thai cooking, the tough, fibrous grass can be bought fresh, frozen (usually minced), or dried and ground into a powder. It can either be finely chopped and integrated into soups and other preparations, or chopped into sticks and bruised and used to flavor dishes while they cook, then removed before serving.

It also makes a nice herb tea -- just add hot water, steep, and serve.
