Native Lemon Grass ~ Dried 50g by Warndu
Native Lemon Grass (cymbopogon ambiguus) is seriously our favourite ingredient of them all. Not just for their sherbet bomb flavour, but because it is like natures paracetamol.
It is a fantastic digestive. It’s well known for its calming effects and aiding in anxiety and stress. In the kitchen, it makes a wonderful addition to teas and cool drinks as well as broths and soups. Delicious for both sweet and savoury uses.
Not as juicy as the lemongrass you might be used to. The stalks are study grass with fluffy tops and are a very pale straw-like colour. Aside from being excellent bush medicine in the treatment of things like colds and headaches, it has a beautiful lemon sherbet flavour. We use it in our Aussie Lemon Tea but it is can be used in broths, to stuff meat or infused into all kinds of sweet treats.
