The tender part of the bottom third of lemongrass is edible; it can be sliced or pounded after the tough outer leaves or layers are removed. Once the fibrous inner stem is finely, finely sliced, you can add it raw to salads or any Asian dishes.

To make a tea:

  • cut the stalks into 1- to 2-inch pieces
  • boil a cup of water
  • pour the boiling water over the lemongrass stalks to steep
  • leave the stalks in the water for at least 5 minutes
  • strain the liquid from the stalks and pour into a teacup

Adding ice cubes will create a cold lemongrass tea.
Start with one cup of lemongrass tea per day, then add more over the next days if you wish to.

Lemongrass is very hardy and do well in full sun or afternoon shade. My beautiful lemongrass bush grows as tall as our house!
