my island life
Wow. I knew it was good but I didn't know it had all those excellent properties.We brew it with two lime leaves, a small stick of cinnamon, a cardamom pod, one clove, a pinch of 'mangrile'...I don't know the other name for it...it's a tiny black seed.Or sometimes, on a hot day, just brew lemon grass [fever grass], lime leaves, sweeten with honey cool with lots of ice.
Hey Zooms, I love this post! Would lemongrass only grow in tropical regions? Do you think I would have any success here in rainy Ireland? I love the last shot especially of the neatly tied lemongrass, painterly and I can nearly smell the lemony fragrance. I have quite a thing for all things lemony too, so this post really spoke to me ; ) Thanks for a lovely visit. love AKR.
Lovely recipes GG, if I could just find some cardamon, we make our tea and drink it with condensed milk, naughty but nice.AKR, I don't see why not, it would probably have to be in a pot inside though. Lovely to hear from you.
Lemongrass in one of my favorite herbs. For a cool summer drink I combine lemongrass, spearmint, red rubin basil with the juice of half of a lemon. Growing up in Grenada has opened my heart and head to the medicinal properties of Lemongrass.I add it to soups and stews.
Mmmm, Lemongrass, thank you,the drink sounds wonderful.
I love lemongrass and have a small patch. In Asia they serve it a a cool tea and the minced leaves are also used as part of herbal body scrubs. I also use it to season fish and curries.
thanks for visiting, it is lovely to see you here.
