A favorite, Lemon Verbena

IMG_5081

A favorite herb in our garden is lemon verbena.  It is an annual in DC so we re-plant it every year.  Just over the last week the plants have turned the corner and suddenly there is plenty to cut.  We use the fresh leaves most often as a tea–– pour hot water over the fresh leaves, let seep and drink.  Lemon Verbena tea is a common way to end a meal in France and is said to aid in digestion.

Other common uses at 1508–– infused lemon balm vodka cocktail, lemon balm oatmeal cookies, frozen coconut lemon balm “ice cream”…
