So, what is zitronengras?

Zitronengras, also known as lemongrass, is a fragrant and versatile ingredient used in many Southeast Asian cuisines. It has long, slender blades with a pale green color, and a fresh, lemony scent. Zitronengras adds a tangy, citrusy flavor to dishes such as curries, soups, and stir-fries, as well as desserts and drinks. It's also used in traditional medicine for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Zitronengras can be found fresh, dried, or powdered in many grocery stores, and is easy to prepare by slicing or pounding to release its aromatic oils.
