Lemongrass Infusion

Lemongrass Infusion

My 3rd Aunt gave me a lemongrass root to plant a few months back. But it wouldn't multiply, only grow leaves. And one uses the stalks for cooking most things, not the leaves. So I have been cutting off the leaves and cursing each time for the waste. Until I remember that the leaves would make great lemongrass infusions.

Clean the leaves, add sugar and hot water and there you have a lovely lemongrass-scented tea! And it's supposed to be good for our health, so one can drink it to one's heart's content.

We found out more about the Unicef gala dinner today. Dress code is "scuro" (does it mean black tie?) and apparently it will be broadcasted on Italian TV.
