Native Lemon Grass (cymbopogon ambiguus) is seriously our favourite ingredient of them all. Not just for their sherbet bomb flavour, but because it is also a fantastic digestive.
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. 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.
We sell our Native Lemongrass in two ways, dried and powdered or dried and whole stalk, in a resealable bags for absolute freshness.
