Lemon Grass.

apparently i never noted when i bought the lemon grass and i can't for the life of me remember.

at any rate, some time in the last twelve months i bought a small pot of lemon grass (cymbopogon citratus). it has since grown from a small cluster (~2" in diameter) of stalks not more than 6" tall into an enormous clump (~8" in diameter) of stalks at least 4 feet tall.

it does indeed smell strongly of lemon when crushed. it is also capable of inflicting horrific paper cuts if not handled with care.

we have yet to cook with lemon grass but there seem to be quite a few recipes with it as an ingredient, especially chicken and fish dishes.
