Lemongrass? Yeah, I think we have some.

I uprooted the huge lemongrass plant in our community garden plot today. I'll be moving on to more local gardening avenues, thank you very much. Anyway, after bringing home a garbage bag full of lemongrass, I set about trimming it up in the yard. Happily, this involved my much underused cleaver. Unhappily, said cleaver split my cutting board in half. Oh well, it was getting old and stained anyway. Long story short, I now have a ton of lemongrass. So far, I plan on making more thai mussels, a vietnamese beef stew, and some lemongrass simple syrup. If anyone has any other ideas, please let me know. Also, I'm wondering if lemongrass freezes well. The stalks you see below are about two thirds of what I came home with. The other third I transplanted. We'll see what happens.

Found your blog through food porn watch - love the pictures... Lucky you, having a garden! Lemon grass freezes like a breeze, you can't even taste the difference, and the texture is pretty much the same. How about using some in a sweet chili sauce?

Got here through Food Porn Watch too. I love your site andhave bookmarked it already. :)

Why not use lemongrass for Thai spicy shrimp soup? Tom Yum Goong is especially yummy with this.
