Ingredients: Lemon Verbena Leaves
Lemon verbena is indigenous to South America. The dried green leaf retains its flavor well and is used whole or chopped. Lemon verbena leaf, also known as Aloysia triphylla, has similar uses to mint and orange flowers. Like those natural herbs, lemon verbena is commonly used as a natural aid for stomachaches, indigestion and flatulence, and it can also be used in many different culinary dishes. Fresh lemon verbena has a strong, lemon-lime-like flavor, with a fruity and pungent aroma. It is commonly used by Europeans to flavor fruit-based drinks, fruit salad dressings, fish soups, marinades, puddings, jams, and desserts. It pairs well with fruits, vanilla, and seafood dishes. Lemon verbena makes a very delightful tea, especially when blended with mint. It is a great addition when looking for a way to enhance the taste of fish, poultry, veggie marinades, stuffing, salad dressing, jellies, and vinegar. Finely crumbled dried leaves can be added to the batters of carrot, banana, or zucchini bread.
